Roberto Ferri, 1978 | Portrait of Pope Francis


Roberto Ferri🎨 devoted himself to Caravaggesque and academic painting - including Ingres🎨, David, Gericault - but also by Surrealist painters🎨.
Ferri's way of painting is elevated by a technique which is almost virtuosity, where the traditional tools of the surrealism are inserted onto the traditional iconographic elements.
Born in Taranto, Italy, he began to study painting at first as a self-taught person and, after moving to Rome in 1999, he deepened his research on ancient painting from the early ’16 century till late ’19 century.
