Hello and Welcome!
My name is Nicola Lupoli, and I am an Artist from Boston Ma. I have been an Artist all my life having grown up in a family of Artists and Art lovers.
Primarily self taught, my greatest influences are my late Artist brother Domenic and studying the paintings and styles of the Old Masters.
My primary interest is in the area of portraiture. For me nothing captures the essence of the spirit like a portrait; it can be very challenging to execute but very rewarding when it finally comes together. I love the way a portrait captures a moment in the life of the subject and perhaps makes you wonder about them, who they are or were and what that person was about. I hope that when I produce a portrait it is more than just a static image but causes the observer to wonder about the subject and feel something of their spirit and emotion.
The medium I prefer to work in is oil, I love the richness and the qualities that it produces I think it is particularly well suited to the kind of work that I do.
