Buskers in Firenze - Original Figurative Oil Painting

    As a street painter in Florence, Italy, (Firenze, Italia) I have gotten to know a couple of the buskers (street performers) that work not far from where I re-create masterpieces of Italian art in the street. This painting is of Francis (the French mime) and Mimito (the Italian ... Man of the Wind). I must say that these street performers make perfect models, holding still for longer than most tourists even see.

    I created this figurative oil painting in January 2011 for the Salon International Oil Painting Competition 2011 hosted by the Greenhouse Gallery of Fine Art in San Antonio, Texas.  Buskers in Firenze was chosen to be among the 430 paintings from thousands of entries worldwide to be in the Salon exhibition in April 2011. When I arrived on opening night, I was elated to see that the judge Daniel E. Greene had awarded this paintings of my European performer friends an Honorable Mention award!

Italian comment by one of the Mime Models:


     On his Facebook page, my friend and model Maurizio Mimito Stefanizzi - Il sorrydista, l'uomo DI-VENTO (The Man of the Wind) wrote:


    Questo quadro lo ha realizzato una mia amica americana "Kelly Borsheim Artist" Pittrice e madonnara a Firenze. Il soggetto nel dipinto oltre me è un artista autentico una delle statue umane più sugestive che abbia mai visto. si chiama Francis ed è francese, ha vissuto in Italia per molti anni e l'ho incontrato in tante città dal nord al sud, non ci siamo mai scambiati i contatti anche perché Francis vive senza l'uso del telefono e dell'autovettura, ma sempre puntuale all'ora giusta al posto giusto per emozionare la folla con la sua originale ed articolata forma d'arte.
    Chi lo ha osservato può confermare.
    Quel giorno Ci siamo divertiti a mescolare le nostre posture incuranti di piacere al pubblico ma quanto di rendere espressive le azioni e nel silenzio delle nostra diversità, ma attenti a rendere l'immagine un filo conduttore.
    Kelly ha immortalato il momento perfetto di quest'azione statica con una foto che successivamente Ritornata in America ha realizzato un quadro presentandolo ad un concorso importante in una nota galleria d'arte in Texas. Kelly ha vinto il primo premio e si è assicurata una mostra in questa galleria delle sue opere.

     
Questa è l'alchimia dell'arte di strada.
