The Symbolic Nature of Agostino Arrivabene

Posted by J Meyers on

La Grande Opera, Oil on Linen - Agostino Arrivabene

Agostino Arrivabene is a masterful and visionary painter from the Italian countryside. He paints using ground pigments and many other traditional working methods that yield themselves to a timeless nature. This is a world of symbols, ancient landscapes and psychological probing that is truly Arrivabene's own.

Arrivabene creates his textured works in a seventeenth-century house outside Milan, Italy. The relative seclusion of the rural farmhouse gives Arrivabene the needed psychological room to paint free from modern world's distractions. At times you can see Arrivabene's love for the old world masters of William Blake and Goya and at others; a more relatively modern Grattage texture of Max Ernst is employed. Dark Art & Craft has chosen some of our favorite, mostly oil, painted works from Arrivabene's extensive collection. Please view his full portfolio and Artist information here agostinoarrivabene.it
