raffaello eroico

Raffaello EROICO

Born in Naples, lives and works in Toulouse - France

"After training as a graphic designer first, then working 10 years as a photographer, I started my research randomly throughout the contemporary art’s overview. Together with the practice of graphic, photography and design, I focused on painting as the ultimate media, 
Since 2004 inspired by the painterly language of the baroque age (probably due to the influence of my Neapolitan roots), I’m committed to a researched balance between traditional, modern and contemporary values.
NdA :
I have not a specific message. I just want to nourish souls with their non verbal language, offering a mental dimension out of time. I'm not interested in any rhetoric nor in a commercial cliché. I look for the most possible simplicity, the most organic experience: I’m an animal who paints. I choose drawing and painting as the closer medium to this approach. This let me free to explore visual arts without conditioning. A freedom kept away for a senseless sterile eclecticism by a few fundamental basic concepts and a discrete coherence.
