Crumbled Reality in Paintings by Flavio Falena

Flavio Falena is an artist who was born in the northern suburbs of Naples. His works examines the decadent, frenetic and contrasting soul of society, with its historical and human aspects. The artist works with different techniques and his material paint rapidly goes from dark tones and decadent surfaces to bright color zones defined by heavy and abstract strokes.

My works are rooted in chaos, my models are pictures that we accumulate over a lifetime. I paint a reality that is crumbled and deformed, looking for those traits that emphasize its identity. My research is based on "sensation", a war picture, a portrait of a woman or any other image that strikes me unleashes a kind of domino effect that ends with what I paint.
