Maximillion Baccanello is a London based artist focused on the human form and figurative arts. Max was classically trained at Charles Cecil STUDIOS in Florence Italy, where tuition was focused on academic portraiture in the lineage of traditional representational art. It was at Charles Cecil where he studied the human anatomy and found his inspiration drawing from life models. His dynamic and powerful figure drawings capture both a classical and contemporary feel. His award winning work has been commissioned for private and corporate collections throughout the UK, America and Europe and has been widely exhibited including, The Pastel Society for 2015 and 2016, The Society of Portrait Artists on Cork Street.
Max works in a classical style using sight size technique. His portraits are done directly from the sitter, under natural light using his classical training to paint,draw and sculpt to scale with perfect precision. This style reflects the work of great artists such as Velázquez, Van Dyck and Sargent.
