Mauro Bacca

Art is a powerful surrogate of the more direct pleasures of life. In my paintings I explore sensuality and lust. The union of the naked bodies of two young lovers is the most genuine expression of the human being.

For the past ten years I have been living between Italy and Southeast Asia, this provided me with a source of inspiration through ancient Khmer art such as the Apsaras, female spirits of the clouds and waters in Hindu and Buddhist culture.
