Spike up your Life
This collection features Dominic Virtosu's Cactus paintings. All paintings are meticulously crafted to exacting standards. The spikes almost sting as their shadow is projected onto the exhuberantly colored plants. In this collection, the artist explores a new dimension of Photorealism - photofantasy.
This collection is open as the artist is continuously expanding the number of cacti that he is painting. Out of a pressing desire to step out of the beaten track, the artist has decided to depict cactus plants as psychedelically colored, multi-layered compositions.
