Nicola Verlato’s Riotous Calamities

by Kirsten AndersonPosted on

Painter Nicola Verlato has just launched a brand spanking new website where viewers can bask in his absolutely masterful paintings of moments captured in a freeze frame. His latest series is based on car crashes, featuring the second right before beautiful free fall become violently catastrophic. Of his work, Nicola says: “I like to investigate chaos through painting. My process allow me to set up (through the use of 3-D initial diagraming, pencil renderings and then finished oil paintings) a chaotic situation through a very methodical system. It’s a very contradictory situation (chaos depicted through meticulous staging – editor) but I think contradictions are the essence of painted images.”
