Marco Battaglini Recontextualizes Renaissance Painting Techniques

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Italian-born, Costa Rica-based artist Marco Battaglini creates masterfully-rendered pastiches that lay out art historical influences on one plane where time does not exist. Classicist figures (the Renaissance’s take on Ancient Greece, a historical allusion within another historical allusion) accompany backdrops covered in landscape-like renderings of graffitied walls. Battaglini sometimes employs paintings techniques proliferated during the Renaissance — like the illusory vanishing point — creating compositions that appear structurally-sound despite their incongruous subject matter. Take a look at some of his work below.
