Martin Sichetti's Illustrations Look Like Scenes from a Murder Movie

Martin Sichetti's paintings are mostly of suspicious looking close-ups that frame what looks like scenes from a thriller. While some paintings are obvious in their murderous intentions, others are quite subtle and symbolic.

He draws pictures of unidentified person's hands performing suspicious acts. Some of them are obviously ill-intended, such as his piece where a hand reaches out to a woman's head. Others are either symbolic or subtle for the way they remind the viewer of a murder plot. These are the pieces where he depicts someone phoning, cutting meat, holding a suitcase and signing papers with ink that looks more like blood.

Putting heavy emphasis on gloves, his work has a chalky look that is cartoon-like and yet, serious at the same time.
