Claudio Giulanelli

  • Painter

Claudio grew up in Rome in the artistic atmosphere of the Eternal City. Living in this environment he was fascinated by the great masters of classical Renaissance Italy. He started by buying prints of famous works and practiced copying them, studying the structure in all its detail. He chose the study of art history and painting techniques. A book on Caravaggio and Flemish painters accompanied him on his daily life and these painters became his references. To perfect his painting style he traveled throughout Europe visiting museums to discover the original works of these masters, including artists' studios in Rome such as Delfo Previtali and Guido Razzi. After these different stages of learning, he decided to devote himself to painting.
Claudio paints a re-invented and imagined medieval period. Woman is the main subject of his work and recurs as a representation of the beauty of nature and perfection of form. For him, she represents the inner self, what is beauty in every human being. These female characters are always represented in smooth movements, ready to come away from the canvas.
Claudio starts by covering his canvas with a dark distemper (specific paint pigments which are bound by glue). He then lets himself be carried away by inspiration and uses yellow paint to draw shapes (circles, ellipses) without any precise depiction. Gradually, these forms inspire in him the structure of the subject (the oval of a face, a mask). He then covers the canvas with a patina to isolate the tempera paint from the oils. He can then paint in the colors and give life to his painting.
Claudio's work is remarkable both for its quality and its deeper meaning. Each character has a spiritually symbolic value. His work is a blend of reality and imagination, of fantasy and mysticism, symbolism and memory. His painting has a timeless and universal light.
