EXCLUSIVE PHOTO FEATURE:
Painting Characters by Lorenzo Castellini
Brazilian based artist, Lorenzo Castellini, lives in one of the world's craziest cities, Sao Paulo. Castellini likens it to being trapped in one of Hieronymous Boschís paintings. In fact, this is the art that imaginative artist creates. He cuts out characters and images from Bosschís paintings and ëtakes Bosch for a walkí around town and places the characters in surreal scenes.
In doing so, many other artists came into Castelliniís mind in which he could also create art, like Van Gogh, Matisse and Basquiat. He has come up with how own term for the art he produces, ëAir Collageí. This is any composition created by the juxtaposition of any form or shape into the subject without physical contact between them.
ìYou have to get time, space, angle, distance and the right opportunity to create an interesting air collage. It looks easy but it is quite hard to get it just right. The main idea is to bring the old masters back to the future and make them do what they did best having fun and puzzling people says Castellini.
