"Sad But True" by Nicola Verlato
Italian-American artist Nicola Verlato combines classical techniques with modern technologies to create images steeped in mythology and emotion.
Beyond this piece created for "Sad But True," Verlato has made several other works inspired by music. "I believe modernity has been dominated by music as its main art form since the late 18th century," Verlato explains. "Music has been the main media of an age...I was always very interested to give my contribution in pictorial forms to the myth process conveyed principally by music which is constantly happening in our times."
