Maurizio De Angelis
Here at London Art we think all our customers are, in themselves, a work of art and so are proud to provide a comprehensive portrait commissioning service. One of our most in demand portrait painters is the wonderfully talented, London based artist Maurizio De Angelis. He creates works which manage to capture the innate essence of his sitters, rather than merely reproducing their physical appearance. His paintings gleam with a deep resonance which brings the viewer back for a second look and provides the buyer with a lifetime of pleasure. Solitary figures sit and wait for an unnamed visitor or spend their time lost in some lush dreamscape. Faces, cast in shadow or bathed in light, look out to the viewer or away to the distant horizon. Eyes glisten and twinkle knowingly in these skilfully realistic pictures. Blue faced Tibetans sit alongside the ancient masks, bringing to mind the masks we all wear in our daily lives.
The skill of this artist is to understand perfectly the way in which a personís body language expresses all of the emotions contained within. De Angelis is an expert in reading the way in which elegant arms and legs tell their own story and posses their own meaning. Minute differences of pose and posture would change the feeling of the piece and the artist handles each detail with care and attention. He uses external factors, such as shadow, to expertly bring out the features of his sitters and highlight their beauty. The sitter is placed before a background of muted or lively colours, designed to compliment their skin tone or bring additional life to the portrait.
