Nothing is left to chance in Nasta’s painting, as every detail matters. Choosing carefully both his models and the fabrics they will be wearing, Sebastian explores in his works an impressive way of combining hyperrealism and abstract. He uses color blocks, foam, topping and aluminium foil to conceal parts of his portraits. His paintings unveil an outstanding technique and mastery, an oscillation between what is visible and what is not.
Sebastian Nasta is an emerging hyperrealist painter. Nasta has always been fascinated with faces, yet still attracted to abstraction. Sebastian found in his signature style an impressive way of combining both, using colour blocks, foam, topping and aluminium foil to conceal parts of his portraits. Each of his painting unveils his outstanding technique and mastery. It results in an “oscillation between what is visible and what is concealed, between the known and the unknown recalls the Freudian psychoanalytic opposition between the conscious and the unconscious”.
