Vittorio Rainieri's artist coefficient
Franco Bulfarini, art critic and Tutor of PitturiAmo, deeply analyzed the art and artistic career of Vittorio Rainieri and assigned him the Artist Coefficient with values:
Critic's Notes: “Rainieri's painting, although figurative, has a strong characterization in being able to grasp, through the skilful use of beams of light, the theatricality of each image. The moments of interpretative vigor and strong dynamism recall, in the technical turn, neo-futurist visions, to be skilfully contrasted with reflexive pauses, rendered as elements of metaphysical stillness, which dialogue with Verdi's music. The tones are coloristically rich and give a good idea of a visual stage, where the artist is the director and conductor of the show, which appears to our eyes always bright, chromatically bright and extraordinarily attractive. We are faced with a master who has a solid, well-acclaimed style, without too many frills or sweetening compromises, such as to make his work in all his works well recognizable and distinctive. His painting is cultured, never banal, it presupposes in-depth knowledge and study, as well as taking care of the dream world, often esoteric, which is a universal heritage, but which in the works of this Master finds space in the particular of each single work always commendable.”
The artist coefficient is essential for artists who wish to evaluate works of art to assign the right economic value.
If you wish to obtain your artistic evaluation coefficient, you can request it from PitturiAmo (paid service).

The following data are included in this large category:
Mauro Fornasero, born in 1964, architect. Start drawing and painting from an early age.
In the last 10 years or so he embarked on a new more contemporary language, for the use of strong colors, the dynamism of lines, mainly investigating the landscape in its broadest sense, including both the natural one and the urban landscape, focusing on characteristic views, monuments, moments of daily life and often inserting surreal and poetic, alienating elements, to which everyone can give their own meaning.
The use of strong lines, geometry, synthesis and strong but "dirty", not pure color, help to further characterize the language of this artist.
A part of his production is dedicated instead to the portrait and the human body, always investigated with personal style.
