Daniel Fortuna, Imagine All the People
2023 Wood and Acrylic Paint, 27.5 27.5 x 2.5 In. Daniele Fortuna is fascinated by the figures of ancient mythology and the dream-worlds they represent. Today, he brings these childhood heroes to life and gives them a third dimension in the form of intricate wooden sculptures with a splash of contemporary colour. These unique statues consist of individual pieces of wood that are cut by hand, assembled like a puzzle and hand painted. His sculptures establish a connection, a bridge over time, between elements of traditional Italian art and pop-art expression.
