Landscapes of Sichuan
Most works in this series are inspired by traditional Chinese ink art. Some have but a Chinese touch of temples, pagodas and monasteries, others are dreamscapes of flying mountains like in the old masterpieces.
Living in "Lotus-Moonlight-Pond, Chengdu", Antonio felt compelled to paint lotus flowers. Executed in his signature style "Structurism" those artworks have gained a lot of recognition in a very short time. With the exception of a cork heart of the flowers, everything is created purely in oil colors.
