When Medusa goes Blue (eng.)

In Greek Mithology Medusa ( Μέδουσα “GUARDIAN, PROTECTRESS ” ) , was a Monster, a Gorgon, generally described as a winged human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Those who gazed upon her face would turn to stone.

The Italian Artist Daniel Fortuna made his Medusa sculpture with his personal style, painting in a very specific Blue color as an Omage to the famous French Artist Yves Klein but adding glistering details on blue paint as a personal touch and feelings.

Daniel is a talented young artist, who made several successful expositions in Milan and all around Italy and Europe, expressing his own unique approach called “COLORMINATION”, that took influences from ancient traditional Art (e.g. Mithology) updating with fresh and brilliant Pop colors and modern symbols as suggested by his unique Art Style.

Yves Klein, 28 April 1928 – 6 June 1962, was a French artist and an important figure in post-war European art. He was a leading member of the French artistic movement of Nouveau réalisme founded in 1960 by art critic Pierre Restany. Klein was a pioneer in the development of performance art and is seen as an inspiration to and as a forerunner of Minimalism Art Wave, as well as Pop Art.
