Valerio Adami is an Italian artist knows for his Nouvelle Figuration movement. Adami began to incorporate various subjects into his artworks such as modern European history, literature, philosophy, and mythology. This is very expressive image with symbolic details as many Adami’s prints. Features on a man’s face make some agony in the atmosphere and Adami’s characteristic lines, on the other side make the composition to calm down.
