When I started trying to promote my own artwork online I kept coming across other people's art that amazed or compelled me in one way or another. This blog has been a way for me to practice thinking and writing about art, as well as learning more about my peers and all the incredible art that is being made out there.

Elia Mauceri

There is no information about the artist on his Flickr site. Most of the paintings are untitled. On his profile page under hometown he has written Fanculo, which is italian for "Fuck off". Under profession: fancazzista. You get the idea. So.... I figure he's probably from Italy. The only other thing that I know is that his aggressive mixed media portraits are raw, immediate, and at their best, disturbingly powerful. He has only been posting since December 2008 but his work has evolved dramatically in barely over a year. It's an interesting and rather exciting progression. It would be nice to have a little more information on many of the pieces, sizes and materials, but regardless I'll be looking forward to seeing where he takes all this in the future.
