Nunzio Paci is an artist based in Bologna, Italy. His gorgeous, multifaceted drawings depict the human body combined with nature and animals. Pen, pencil, and a little bit of color are used to craft these intricate images that mix ink drips with fine, precise renderings. These pieces could be part of a sketchbook because they include small, written notations next to the drawings – as if Paci will refer to them later.
The anatomical artworks give us a look inside the lungs and torso. There are vein-like structures that have the appearance of tree branches, and from it they meander into a fully-formed forest. There's a surrealistic quality to Paci's drawings, and the artist wants to push the boundaries of this subject matter. He explains, “my intention is to explore the infinite possibilities of life, in search of a balance between reality and imagination.”
