If this summer you’ve decided to take a holiday close to home, the drawings of Roberto Pagliarulo could still take you far away. Luminous, colourful, romantic, full of reverie, these paintings transport us to the Amalfi Coast.
Like the artists Peter Doig and David Hockney, Roberto paints the landscape with nostalgia, with magical realism and as an expression of his identity. Over the last five years he has been particularly attracted to the Amalfi Coast: “Amalfi is an exacerbated expression of the beauty of Italy” he entrusts to the site Creative Boom. “A grandiose view of sinuous curves, cliffs, the sea, always there in the background, with lemons, flowers, tomatoes and trees in the foreground that pushes the eyes into the blue and green of the Mediterranean landscape”.
