Sergio has been a well known “nude” artist since the 90s, and particularly enjoys exploring the effect of light on the human body.

He primarily paints oil on linen, overlapping thin layers as a grisaille of soft colours, and then slowly intensifying the colour over layers, allowing him to achieve the atmosphere he wants for each work.

Sergio’s works are always an interesting contrast in meticulous planning and an amazing artistic intuition, as he likes to say, “I plan just enough to be creative.” Sergio always enjoys making friends – and as a result is often friends with his models, allowing him to create unique ideas others would be unable to get with strangers.
