I am Pierpaolo Catini, an Italian artist based in New York City. In my last series, I create my characters using recycle of my home. I notice the beauty of some bones and I try to find a right utilize in my artwork shaping face, also using stones, shells, wood, plastic, eggshells, eye dolls, can, straw, old pipe, old glasses and everything that can be used for the second time and for a better life of the object.
I use glue and oil paints, but also acrylic, nails polish and clay. All is on canvas framed and usually I decorate the frame too. These artworks are all the same size 11x9inches but actually I start before doing this with a series of painting called Village series, where stones, plaster of Paris, gesso and stucco or concrete give me a materci surface like base.
