Italian contemporary artist Marco Grassi débuts his latest body of work in a solo exhibition titled ‘Mama Raised Me Right’. His distinctive fusion of realism and surrealism comes to life in striking figurative portraits in which the pastel color palette is interwoven with the artist’s extraordinary 24k gold leaf element. The subjects range from the traditionally beautiful and romanticized to the modern and provocative, unapologetically meeting the eye of the viewer.
Grassi, commenting on his forthcoming solo exhibition said:
“I am truly delighted that my solo exhibition will take place soon in London, things have felt so uncertain for a long time. For me, touching people’s lives through art is what matters most, so I hope, in some small way, it lifts spirits and brings together the art community.”
