Italian artist Gianluca Mattia has a vision unlike any other. By mixing melancholy with hardcore, Mattia is able to delve into many aspects of pop culture as he integrates them in one solid image. These illustrations pose many questions regarding drugs, suicide and sex; however, his surrealistic tactic in drawing puts him a genre on his own.

The latest portfolio entitled 'Pupazze' showcases tattooed and semi-erotic images that although vividly colorful, carry sorrowful weight in their metaphorical underpinnings. Gianluca Mattia definitely knows how to color outside the lines.
