Nicola Samorì Biography

Nicola Samorì is an artist steeped in the tradition of 17th century Italian painting and sculpture, but with a determinedly contemporary stance. His allusions to the inspiration of Old Masters reveals how Samorì shares with them an idea of creating something new out of what already exists by means of artistic transformation. Works such as his figurative busts and sculptures made from wax push the tradition almost as far as possible from the idealised vision of Ancient Greece and the Renaissance to become deconstructed representations of classical sculpture.
