CANDID: AN APPRECIATION OF MOMENTS THAT ARE OFTEN OVERLOOKED
Vittoria Cugno (b.2001) is an emerging Melbourne based artist who specialises in oil portrait paintings. In the past year, Vittoria has focused on capturing candid moments in her lived life, and representing them as paintings to show appreciation for these small, light-hearted and often overlooked memories. Most recently, she has been using a fan brush to blur the wet and rendered parts of her paintings to create fine and delicate lines, which result in a sense of movement. This visual motif is now part of Vittoria’s signature art style, which she aims to continue to explore.
