Trung Cao | Realist painter

- "I’m a realist artist residing in the Vallejo, California. While oil is my favorite medium, I also work in graphite, charcoal, acrylic and gouache. My artwork reflects on themes of values and exquisite beauty, real or imaginary.

Alda Merini / Giuliano Grittini | Noi abbiamo delle piccole utilità..

Alda Merini da Giuliano Grittini (Fotografo ed artista italiano, 1951)

Noi abbiamo delle piccole utilità:
per esempio io amo te e vorrei che tu mi guardassi negli occhi,

e sentiresti che il mio cuore pulsa in una sola direzione,
per questo faccio finta di non vedere niente.
