Nature and Anatomy Collide in the Illustrations by Nunzio Paci

Italian artist Nunzio Paci creates paintings using pencil and oil while his favourite subjects are plants and animals mixed with human anatomies.

Nunzio Paci is Bologna-based painter and illustrator known for his philosophic re-imaginings of anatomical studies. Themes of death, rebirth, and the undefinable boundaries of the body and spirit have followed him throughout his work. Human and animal anatomy melds with the vines and roots of disparate plant life.

“My whole work deals with the relationship between man and Nature, in particular with animals and plants. The focus of my observation is body with its mutations. My intention is to explore the infinite possibilities of life, in search of a balance between reality and imagination,” says Paci.
