My name is Francesco Marino, I am a self-taught painter born in Augusta in 1988. Art has always accompanied my life. From a very young age I loved drawing, a passion that I cultivated with great commitment, up to the age of nineteen, when I felt I needed a breakthrough. I realized that I was fascinated by painting and so I began to deepen the art of oil painting. Since then I have not left this artistic reality with which I express myself, trying to deepen the technique in every nuance of color. In my subjects I always tend to capture the beauty and the emotions that are transmitted to me from nature. I also like to add a touch of personality to all this by decontextualizing the elements from the reality to which they belong. I love using vivid colors and dwell a lot on the details. My painting has been called hyper-realistic. When I work on a painting it is fundamental for me to do a delicate job and I make use of numerous passes in order to refine each draft as much as possible.
