Organic portraits by Marco Mazzoni
Artist Marco Mazzoni lives and works in Milan. He works exclusively with colored pencils and creates dark and deep visuals inspired by nature and based on Italian folklore. His favorite subjects are flora and fauna, which develop on the blind faces of young women.
These allegorical figures are inspired by Sardinian legends, in which Janas and Cogas, witches of nature come to seduce, enchant, curse or heal. The artist’s circular compositions around these characters incorporate elements related to enchantments and witchcraft, such as medicinal plants, butterflies or birds, with a plethora of details impressive in terms of the technique used. The works of Marco Mazzoni are highly colored and have been regularly exhibited at various events, notably at the Patricia Armocida gallery in Milan in 2013.
