The Italian artist Roberto Ferri is considered by many to be a living classic of painting. This master works in the neoclassical style, and his beautiful and gloomy works are inspired by the heyday of the Baroque. Caravaggio and other great painters of the neoclassical period had a strong influence on Ferry's work, but this does not mean that there is no place for individuality and even experiments in his works.

Roberto Ferri was born in 1978 in Taranto, Italy. His formation as an artist took place in his native lands, known for their ancient and rich history.

Roberto Ferri's paintings are painted in calm colors, which simplifies the perception of difficult, often surreal subjects. Sometimes, during a cursory acquaintance with the works of the master, the viewer does not notice the details that play a key role in the meaning of the image. Sometimes these are creepy, unnatural elements: entrails, physical abnormalities, wounds or frightening artifacts.
