Images from the artist Valerio D’Ospina.

Information from Artist A Day:

'Emilio Valerio D’ Ospina was born in Taranto September 9, 1980. On July 14, 1999 he received an artistic diploma from Liceo Artistico Statale “Lisippo” in Taranto, where he was first introduced to the world of art. In November of the same year he moved to Florence to further his artistic studies. There he enrolled in his first painting course under the instruction of Professor R. Giovannelli in the Accademia di Belle Arti.

D’ Ospina now lives and paints in the United States, focusing on painting. D’ Ospina’s work is receiving acclaim from critics and collectors alike and is showing work across the Nation.’

I quite like the subdued colour palette and visible texture of brush strokes creating energy within seemingly quieter scenes.
