 "La Gioia" october - december 2014

Born in 1968 in Italy. Lives and works in New York.

With a passion for the art of dioramas Paulo Ventura’ stories are hybrids between fact and fiction, the present day and the past, all tinged with nostalgia. After Ventura imagines a narrative, he then makes watercolors that will guide the construction of three-dimensional sets, with a unique eye to details. The results are theatrical images that evoke a magical, mysterious atmosphere. The artist started working with miniatures. Recently he has been using life-size sets and inserting himself as well as a member of his family in the photographs.
