great pleasure in presenting these examples of the work
of local artist. Selene Salvi was born in Naples in 1976. After
graduating from university with a degree in philosophy,
she began her artistic studies in the studio of the
realist Neapolitan painter, Fulvio De Marinis,
through the time-honored ritual of copying the works of
the masters. Raffaello, Rubens, Caravaggio, de
Ribera, Ingres, Bouguereau, and the 18th-century
Neapolitan school became a solid base from which
to launch her own original works and creative impulses.
At the same time, she dedicates herself to design and
drawing, working from live models. Her portraits are
displayed in various Italian galleries. Her teacher is
shown below. No, not the guy in the white beanie.
