About the artist Marcello del Prato
Marcello del prato is a 22-year-old Roman painter who has accrued a following for his intense black and white oil paintings. His artistic path begun in his childhood and has become increasingly important as his life progressed. The intention behind his art is that of portraying the psychological unease he senses in himself and others around him. The choice to work mostly in black and white begun as an esthetic choice, but has become a deeply conceptual decision. He focuses on black and white paintings because he is interested in mastering form before diving into the study of color, which distracts the viewer from pure form and from the physical traits of the subjects he portrays. However, he is currently challengin his artistic style, and trying to find new ways of expression.
