Faceless: Intriguing Portraits by Fabio La Fauci

Published Dec 3, 2018

Italian artist Fabio La Fauci creates stunning abstract portraits by smearing thick layers of acrylic paint on canvas to produce ‘faceless’ paintings.

“Fabio La Fauci’s work, often inspired by Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism, and oscillating between abstract atmosphere and organic reality, escapes all attempts at artistic classification. His works’ intrinsic plastic ambiguity enables a transformation, the passage from one form to another form and from one meaning to another meaning. This process derives from the artist’s subconscious, from his most hidden fears and emotions and art becomes, in this perspective, a sort of catharsis.”

— E. Battiston
