"LEONARDO'S TRIBUTE" / AVAILABLE ORIGINAL AND PRINTS

OIL ON CANVAS / 60 inches x 60 inches

Mauricio Avayu's latest painting is an evocative masterpiece that seamlessly blends historical inspiration with contemporary elegance. Drawing from the grandeur of the Pegasus sculpture at Gulfstream in Miami and Leonardo da Vinci's ambitious design for the world's largest equine sculpture, Avayu creates a dynamic fusion of classical and modern elements.The painting features intricate Versace-inspired details, with the mythical Medusa subtly depicted in the background, symbolizing the story of Perseus and Pegasus. Avayu masterfully mimics the mosaic patterns reminiscent of the Versace mansion in Miami, adding layers of texture and depth to the composition.

The color palette is dominated by shades of grey, black, white, and gold, giving the piece a timeless and luxurious feel.

A notable inscription in Greek, reflecting the phrase "Leon de Fuego Vencerá" (Leonardo da Vinci), adds an element of intrigue and mystique.

 Additionally, a detail from Leonardo's notebooks, related to his mold design, is meticulously inscribed, bridging the past with the present.

Avayu's attention to detail and his ability to integrate various artistic influences make this painting a stunning tribute to both classical art and contemporary design. This piece is not just a visual delight but also a narrative journey through art history and modern luxury.
