Self-taught. Main subjects: Figures and Urban Landscapes. Techniques: oil, pastel clay, acrylic pastes. "Sante Muro, Lucanian artist born in 1978, in his ten-year artistic experience moves on the double creative track of portrait and urban landscape. This double trend allows the artist to investigate and collect stories, emotions, experiences and feelings gathered together on the canvases at end of travels and encounters, which find happy expression in a mature and studied pictorial procedure. The incisive cuts, the pastel signs, the shaded clays and the strength of the palette knife are the peculiar traits of Sante Muro's canvases, embellished by the vivid encounter of colors in movement that guarantee a sense of reality and total immersion in faces and landscapes.
