And wonders, as it should happen ... Artist Manfredi Beninati

  We are such stuff as dreams are made. And sleep surrounded by our little life. (William Shakespeare).


On the canvases of the Italian artist Manfredi Beninati miracles happen. Memory ... Childhood ... Dream ... Tale ... These words are very suitable for the description of the artist's works. Colorful landscapes consuming dream. As a former director, Beninati knows how to build the frame of the scene to bring the time and place of eccentricities.


  Panoramas figures of children and animals in a nutshell - a wonderful mishmash of reality hides the boundaries between fiction and reality. Bizarre game of space and volume. Every detail of how the magnetic force - human faith. Remember how Lewis Carroll:

- And what's that sound over there? - Alice asked, nodding at the very secluded thicket some pretty vegetation on the edge of the garden.
- And it's wonders - the Cheshire Cat said indifferently.
- And ... And what are they doing there? - Asked the girl.
- As expected, - cat yawned. - Happen .....
