“Filippo is an artist with a great story – we can all re­late to his par­ents telling him to ‘get a proper job’ – and that comes out in his work. His art, while very el­e­gant, has el­e­ments of hu­mour which re­ally ap­peal to me.” Gary Evans, Staff Writer

1 Ay gala nos! “A piece in­spired by Ernest Hem­ing­way’s The Old Man and the Sea. I thought it would be in­ter­est­ing to use an un­re­al­is­tic point of view, show­ing what’s go­ing on both above and un­der the wa­ter.”

2 The Wizard “I was study­ing one of my favourite artists, Arthur Rackham. I inked the line art on wa­ter­colour paper, then scanned it and dig­i­tally coloured it – try­ing to achieve a tra­di­tional wa­ter­colour ef­fect.”

3 Rou­jin to umi “An­other piece in­spired by The Old Man and the Sea. I wanted to show a dra­matic com­po­si­tion, while draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from Ja­panese ukiyo-e prints’ flat and dull colours. I scanned my pen­cil line art then coloured it in Pho­to­shop.”

4 Shed Your Lea ves “This was for a mag­a­zine com­pe­ti­tion with a theme of A Frail Shed­ding of Leaves. I de­picted the re­la­tion­ship be­tween man and na­ture, in­clud­ing the in­evitabil­ity of age­ing and death, but also with a hu­mor­ous twist and a sense of re­newal.”
