It's rare to see genuine technical skill in realist paintings nowadays, with the proliferation of photography making the skill somewhat unnecessary, but Vincent Desiderio's paintings truly arrest audiences and prove that the techniques of the old masters are still valuable even in modern times. Vincent Desiderio's paintings are reminiscent of a style that dominated the Renaissance, but they feature contemporary subjects and all manage to evoke an emotional weight to them.

Already garnering incredible international accolades, Vincent Desiderio will surely be an artist to be mentioned in the same breath as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Raphael and other greats centuries from now.
