tommaso nicolao

i find the paintings of tommaso nicolao so incredibly interesting. he paints an assortment of people, identifying them primarily by large, colorful shapes. this idea paired with white backgrounds allows me to appreciate the shape, color, and gestures of different kinds of people, and each painting tells a story. tommaso’s talents don’t end with painting—he’s also an accomplished designer and art director.

i don’t think that in the context of my work i’m really allowed to have a favorite color. and even if i did i think that my choice would change every day. so i picked the basic cmyk pallet, giving me the freedom of mixing as i wish + a gold-leaf option, for the days in which i feel rich (or mystical?)…
