We are proud to present the artist spotlight of the week at Mash Gallery!
Battifora is a self-taught American artist whose work can be found in private collections of people in major cities like Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas, and New York. Over the years his style has evolved from realistic portrait painting to modern pointillism. Bold colors and a central figure are common themes in his work. His inspiration originates from Marie Antoinette, viewing her as a metaphor for controversy, luxury, abundance, and unapologetic love for beauty. Marie Antoinette represents the “first” influencer, reinventing herself and finding power in a male-dominated society.

“My paintings are a celebration of unashamed fabulousness and the power in reinventing oneself and becoming what we want others to see. I’m looking at you; you are not looking at me. Do you have to like it? No. Do you have to deal with it? Of course!”
