DGC'11 Nick Napoletano showcases ArtPrize work

DGC'11 Nick Napoletano showcases ArtPrize work

Earlier we shared that DGC'11 alumnus Nick Napoletano (Hartford Art School, BFA Illustration, expected May 2012) was participating in the prestigious ArtPrize competition showing his "Fraternal Co-dependence" entry September 21-October 9, 2011.

Now we would like to post images of Nick's monumental artwork, which involved a 7.5 ft. x 16 ft. canvas that breaks down and folds into four separate sections for easier transportation. The piece was painted in just over two months time working 16-20 hours a day. Over 1000 hours of work excluding canvas construction. The painting consists of 11 realistic figures —all life-size— utilizing an aerial perspective to capture an increased sense of dynamism in the poses. The rendering of the figures are done in a tightly refined style.

Fraternal Co-dependence is not shown in this post (yet) because it will be displayed at ArtPrize, therefore, we want to keep the mystery until it is presented to the public at the competition. Later we will update this post with Nick's amazing artkwork.
