It is easy to picture old Victorian artworks hung in museums when the words 'oil' and 'painting' are brought up, but there is nothing old or Victorian about Valerio D’Ospina's oil paintings. First of all, Valerio D’Ospina's creations could be mistaken for digital artworks. Like a darkly illustrated dream sequence, the brushstrokes are blurred to create a sense of intense emotion.

Born in Southern Italy and currently based in Pennsylvania, Valerio D’Ospina mostly concentrates on depicting gritty scenes such as ship yards, trains, and factories. Valerio D'Ospina recently showcased his work at the Hall Spassov Gallery in Bellevue, Washington. A talented artist, he is definitely a person art enthusiasts will want to keep their eyes on.
