About

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Ceravolo's Portrait/illusion urban Pop paintings Ceravolo has created "Sophia 2". Nowadays so many artists are combining realistic figures with abstract elements on the same canvas, but Ceravolo was the artist instrumental in doing that 40 years ago in 1979 with his painting "The Drive Inn" which incorporated a gray realistic portrait of a female model within an abstract canvas and then added some "Illusion" colors that appeared to be raised above the canvas. "Sophia 2" pays tribute to those paintings that became the trademark of Ceravolo's unique and trend setting style of painting. His work is collected worldwide and is in many important collections including, Sir Elton John, Rod Stewart, Hugh Hefner and Prince Jefri of Brunei to name a few. In addition to those, in 1977 his paintings came to popular attention when he was commissioned to create 6 large scale paintings for the lobby of The Palladium Theatre in New York City. In this painting "Sophia 2", Ceravolo has taken his pop art stylized painting of Sophia Loren, and combined it with a pattern of benday dots to create the basis of "Sophia 2". He then transfers the image he has just created on canvas using archival inks and paints his trademark brush strokes and textures on the canvas over the portrait using acrylic, oil stick and spray paint. He then decides where he will paint the "floating" illusion that creates that 3d floating effect he is known for. Canvas measures 36x28".
