Myths

Photography & Design

I love photographing historical items and creating my own art with them. I have in mind the context of each Work of Art or the story it shows to create a new visual artwork.

I combine my knowledge in History and Archaeology with the use of different photo editing softwares to create this art pieces. Please find below some of them!

Digital art piece of Mars sculpture, inspired by Roman mythology and Comparative History. On this exercise I have tried to combine both, the Roman mythology of Mars (with his sacred animal the woodpecker, constellations and colours) and the increasingly importance of Eastern presence in Western cultures. I photographed the original sculpture at the Louvre Museum in Paris.

Digital art piece of the first Roman Emperor, Augustus (27 BD - 14 AD). Inspired by the Res Gestae Divi Augusti, one of the earliest propagandistic texts known. Through the ephemeral soap bubbles, I want to reflect the empty words of the Res Gestae. This text is not considered as a historical document but as a mere propaganda used by Augustus to legitimate the creation of a new political system. I photographed the original sculpture at the Louvre Museum in Paris. Click here to see the full project.
