Issue nº18 / NAOMI WATTS X MAX PELLEGRINI
Naomi Watts is the subject of Tatijana Shoan’s lens in this special art cover story that features the work of Italian Figurative painter Max Pellegrini, one of the most celebrated Italian artists working today. Known for his large-scale compositions that fill the canvas with rich colors and iconography, Pellegrini draws freely from a range of disparate sources, including Old Master paintings, pop culture, contemporary life, music, religious iconography, literature, and fashion. Watts’ iconic status is matched by her sublime talent. Known for her versatile and enduring performances, Watts’ persona fits perfectly within Pellegrini’s rich symbolic world that often depicts women as sources of strength, power and passion. Watts is center stage in this collaborative artwork that shows her strength, beauty, passion and humanity in unforgettable works of art that echoes our current environment and the contemplative state we all find ourselves in.
