The Symbolic Nature of Agostino Arrivabene

Canto Infernale I

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 timelines nature. This is a world of symbols, ancient landscapes and psychological probing that is Arrivabene's own.

Arrivabene creates these oil works in a seventeenth-century house outside Milan, Italy. The relative seclusion of the rural farmhouse gives Arrivabene the needed psychological room to paint. At times you can see Arrivabene's love for the old world masters of William Blake and Goya and other times a more relatively modern Grattage texture of Max Ernst.
