Layla Fanucci is an international artist & author most famous for her unique cityscape paintings exhibited in galleries/museums worldwide.
Fanucci’s challenge was to develop a style of painting that no one paints, in the world. She found her voice and that style in her cityscape paintings. Applying layer upon layer of paint on her canvases, searching for the colors that best communicate the mood that gives the truest essence of the city. When the paint finally dries, she takes a brush and in black, draws the outlines of the buildings, bridges, streets and people, imbuing the painting with life and adding particulars that will make the city unique and distinctive. Painting city upon city, her paintings have two, three or four full paintings/cities underneath the final works.
What is art?
“Art is like a song that touches your heart and soul and reaches you in ways words cannot. That is what art does, it’s speaks to the soul, it speaks to the heart and it comforts us. The colors are to make you and all of us happy, to brighten our dark days with light until we are safe again.” Layla
