Arturo Samaniego has got us swooning. This contemporary figurative artist living in North Naples, Florida uses rich oil paints to create his vision of the female figure. The detail applied to his subjects is coupled with the theme of water in many of his paintings, creating silken bodies and faces dripping with emotion. Samaniego also specializes in abstract paintings, painting lush clouds of passion upon his canvases.
For an artist who describes his work as “a blend of realism, minimalist cool and contemporary edge.” I can’t help but feel as if I am trapped inside an modern day Botticelli inspired dream while looking at his work. Fall in love with some of our favorite Arturo Samaniego pieces below.
