Da Velasquez a Las Meninas is a work of Giovanni Crisostomo’s collection.

The artist is deeply attracted to Velasquez’s work, and here we see his reinterpretation of the famous self-portrait that Velasquez made at the court of the Infata of Spain, when he portrayed her with some of the courtiers.
Obviously Chrysostom maintains his unmistakable style, made up of monochromatic areas which in their pigeon-holing give life to somewhat androgynous figures, but absolutely identifiable. The dark colors typical of velasquez, here are transformed into a warm sensation, where green and red shades are positioned on a brown background but always in pastel shades.
In the long professional experience, the artist has had the opportunity to attend great masters both in Italy and abroad, which allowed him to perfect his art. His works have an unmistakable personality and style. His style is inspired by the currents of the great French painters of the second half of the nineteenth century and by the Futurism of the early twentieth century. Two great schools to which contemporary art often turns. In the case of Giovanni Crisostomo there is a fusion and an original evolution of these two artistic movements, which allows him to create with an unmistakable and original style and at the same time to enter into very different themes. His paintings recall the artistic stained glass windows of churches, where elements of various colors and shapes meet to create complex figures, a sort of great puzzle.
