As a 21st-century artist, he skillfully navigates between the past and present, paying homage to traditional Baroque art while introducing a timeless aesthetic that resonates with modern audiences.
Born in 1978 in Taranto, Roberto Ferri's artistic journey began at the Liceo Artistico Lisippo, a local art school. After moving to Rome, he developed a deep appreciation for Baroque artists, leading him to extensively study late 16th-century paintings. Today, Ferri's artistry is recognized globally, with his works being part of private collections in cities like Rome, Paris, London, and Madrid. One of his notable recent works is ‘The Kiss of Dante and Beatrice,’ commissioned by Magnum in 2021 to commemorate the 700th death anniversary of Dante Alighieri.
Ferri often explores the theme of the nude in his artwork, using it to depict the vulnerability inherent in the intersection of reality and the human body. His painting style, reminiscent of the 17th-century tradition, masterfully plays with the interplay of shadow and light. Roberto Ferri's artwork uniquely combines modern subjects with a classical style, incorporating elements of surrealism through psychological depth and dreamlike introspection. This approach lends a mysterious quality to his works, inviting viewers to delve into the depths of the human subconscious.
