Tomaso Albertini

 This year's resident artist at Naples Art is Tomaso Albertini, a young Italian-born artist who usually works out of New York City. 

According to his website:  These works are a series of portraits that transform the human being into a new eco-human entity.  Figures of a modern hero who represent those people who care for and struggle daily to preserve the environment.

His portraits use cardboard, a symbol of consumerist New York, to create three-dimensional art.  He accomplishes a figure as if it were a sculpture and then paints on it as if it were a canvas. This unique technique introduces dynamics approaching sculpture.

A bit pricey, at least for me.
