Maurizio De Angelis is a realist painter specialise in portraiture.
He lives and works in London and for almost 15 years he has focused in painting in oil on wooden panel.
Whenever is possible, Maurizio prefers to take pictures of the sitter in his studio in Islington where he has the right lightning system and camera equipments.
Before that, he normally discusses with the sitter about the pose, expression, lighting and narrative elements considered.
Once he gets the pictures, Maurizio makes a first selection and then works together with the sitter in order to find the best photograph.
Once the selection has been made the work can start.
Should a meeting with the sitter not be possible a good quality photograph will be requested.
