Beppe Bonazzoli is an italian artist living in Phuket who recently held an exhibition at Leo & Mas Italian restaurant in Patong.

Beppe is also a journalist, who is based right here in Phuket. He loves art and gives a new interpretation to the best known painting declining how could be portrayed Lisa Gherardini (Mona Lisa) in our century.

With a mixture of art (InkJect on canvas press, oil paint, collage accessories), Beppe proposes different versions of Mona Lisa who are living and maybe are working in different parts of the world.

Mona Lisa, also known as La Gioconda, is an oil painting on a poplar panel (77 cm x 53 cm) by Leonardo da Vinci. Dated between 1503-1514 the painting is at the Musée du Louvre in Paris, under the title Portrait of Lisa Gherardini, wife of Francesco del Giocondo. The other name Mona (Lisa) is a contraction, in Italian a polite form of address originating as ma donna — similar to ma’am, madam, or my lady in English.

Mona Lisa is the best known and most famous portrait in the world and has inspired critics, writers, painters and psychoanalysts alike.

The famous painting followed Leonardo da Vinci and it was readjusted for many years by the famous artist. Subjected to many X-Ray analysis the painting shows that there are three Monna Lisa versions hidden under the known painting.

Considered one of the most famous icons of traditional art, La Gioconda is often used in symbolic sense by contemporary artists.

The underlying idea is that Da Vinci’s portrait has become part of the human heritage as a universal icon of the feminine image in its various declinations. Thus, the collection Mona Lisa Global does not mean to violate the original masterpiece: it is only an attempt to give a new interpretation – also ironic – of the feminine image which has been increasing more and more in relevance, dignity and importance in our times now.

The series consists of 12 subjects with this theme:

Mona Lisa Diving – Mona Lisa Punk – Mona Lisa Muslim
Mona Lisa Manager – Mona Lisa Violence - Mona Lisa Sexy
Mona Lisa Guerrillera – Mona Lisa Doctor – Mona Lisa Press
Mona Lisa Thai – Mona Lisa Chef – Mona Lisa Plastic Surgery

With a mixture of art (InkJect on canvas press, oil paint, collage accessories), Beppe Bonazzoli proposes different versions of Mona Lisa who are living and maybe are working in different parts of the world.


Credits: Beppe thanks’s the Italian artist Corrado Andriani for the technical help.
