    A personal reinterpretation of Italian Reinassance's fresco "Trionfo di Bacco e Arianna" by Annibale Carracci, 1597-1602 Rome. It belongs to a part of a bigger illustration I'm drawing. Original charachters and symbols are turning into a contemporary vision of transcultural life : anthropology of cultures of the world, traditionals clothes, rituals, street culture and icons of consumerism joining and mixing all together.

    Published:
"Trionfo di Bacco e Arianna" (Villa Farnese, Roma 1597-1602) by Annibale Carracci's personal interpretation.

In my work each detail becomes important to me because its existence is a reflection of an attitude and it expresses a way of thinking, 
a way of seeing the world.
In a broad sense - from Punk to Wayuu, from Soninke to Anarchism - all cultures take inspiration from other cultures, 
they help us make sense of others.

There are plenty different cultural references starting from the Candomblé dressed woman sat on the left corner, to Sicilian cart interpreted with hairstyles pictures framed on it, blended with different symbols of consumerism and fashion garments.
