Paolo Girardi is an Italian artist who creates richly colored, apocalyptic and macabre paintings. His work recalls a history of master painters; Ruoppolo, Hieronymus Bosch, Porpora and at times even Pieter Bruegel's festering compositions. While paying homage to the traditional methods of painting Paolo's work has a thoroughly dark thematic approach that is instantly recognizable. Paolo's epic and illustrative art has been used by a roster of metal and doom groups, such as; Bell Witch, Black Breath, Lycus, Vastum, Battle Ram, Artifical Brain and more. Paolo currently resides in Ascoli Piceno, Italy. Please view some of our favorite pieces below.
