Hi everyone guys! I am really excited to be finally online with a website done entirely by me. Who am I ? My name Is Emanuele Fittipaldi I am an Italian artist born In Salerno in 05/07/1994. I graduated from high school in computer science, but right after I ended the school, I decided to finally embrace what I always knew I had to pursuit. Art. I’ve always had a pencil in my hand since I was a little boy, but I ‘ve never taken It too seriously since 18 years of age. When I was eighteen I decided to learn how to paint with oil paint, but I wasn’t ready for that. There were too much information to handle, and I soon felt overwhelmed by the amount of things that I was reading at that time, so I ended up using pencils instead. That was the beginning of my Hyperrealism period (you can see the works that I’ve produced in the homepage, under the voice “drawings”), that lasted 3 years. That way of working got me unhappy very soon, because I needed to express myself more freely. It was at that point that I’ve decided finally to learn everything I could about oil painting techniques, that’s how I begun discovering all the Old masters (that afterwards became my idols) such as Raeburn, Hals, Velasquez, Sargent, Zorn… etc. Now I am following this path, expressing all my feelings in a freer way, trying to combine old masters knowledge, with a contemporary story.
I decided to open this website because I didn’t have a place where to show my works and to create a community of my own, and to share with you every step I am making into this jungle called “art world “. That made me take into consideriton to also open a Blog, which I ‘ve ended up building with much love and passion .
In this Blog I will cover anything that might be interesting for the art lover, from lessons, discussions on techniques, history of art and much more, in order to create a beautiful place, full of harmony where every artist can share Its personal ideas, making this blog a bible for artists, that anyone can browse, anytime, anywhere.
