The sensuality of the female figures. Wonderful example of how Chrysostom manages to express his art. The sensuality of the female figures, with their naked bodies lying softly on a sofa, reveal a sense of pleasure and elegance. The oriental environment, outlined with skilful strokes of color, which let us understand without specifying. Everything plays an important role in this picture, from the fruit in the foreground to the fan in the background. The modern style takes up the tradition of Futurism, but also detaches it, leaving more space for the two female subjects. In his long professional experience, the artist has had the opportunity to attend great masters both in Italy and abroad, which have allowed him to perfect his art. His works have an unmistakable personality and style. His style takes inspiration from the currents of the great French painters of the second half of the 19th century and from the Futurism of the early 20th 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 windows of churches, where elements of various colors and shapes meet to create complex figures, a kind of large puzzle.
