Antonio Santin%u2019s Ghostly Still-Life Oil Paintings | Hi-Fructose Magazine
- The billowed rugs and other objects in Antonio Santinâ€™s ghostly oil paintings are rendered with unsettling realism. The Madrid native works in â€śelaborate still-lifes,â€ť as he alters his subjects to create new realities. The artist taps into the tradition of Spanish Tenebrism and a sculptural background to dream up and execute these works on canvas. When photographed from a distance, the work still turns heads, with the viewer attempting to understand what he or she is seeing. He was featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 18 and was last featured on HiFructose.com here.
