Nicola Samori has managed to create a beautiful series of work that reflects a darker, depressing aesthetic.

Using oil paints, the artist manages to put a twist on traditional paintings. Nicola Samori smudges the faces of her subjects and surrounding area. The paintings' faces are hard to make out and add a haunting effect to the otherwise flawless depictions. The images are dark and haunting, yet undeniably beautiful. Nicola Samori's talent though is on par with many other artists, as her work and message is clearly displayed through her oil paintings.

Nicola Samori's work, according to JL Schnabel, "[...] incorporates the intense and realistic style of the Baroque period within a modern, psychological context."
