MMA Mixed Minds Art


MMA Mixed Minds Art by Francesco Esposito and Felicita Fiorini

MMA Mixed Minds Art is an art project born at the beginning of last year from the interaction of two different disciplines (photography and painting) in the field of visual arts.

A multifaceted project, has seen over time the contamination and implementation of different disciplines deriving from one's profession and experience. The common denominator is the search for new and original artistic forms both digital and manual.

The project was born from the combination of two minds: Francesco Esposito, Art director, 3d artist and photographer, and Felicita Fiorini, artist specialized in pastel painting and construction engineer.

MMA explores, through experimentation, new forms of art expression. Through a continuous search for different styles, produced by emerging contemporary artists or already established on the international scene, MMA develops its own integrated and personal design, which in the process will become a unique work of its kind. The project finds its strength from the interaction of different and complementary application tools: starting from the sketch, we move on to the photo shooting, to the subsequent post-production and processing through CGI (Computer-generated Imagery) and finally it is painted becoming a unique work . With this process, the work leads to the creation of artistic forms at the forefront of the international contemporary arts scenario.

A little over a year of activity, MMA has already obtained the first recognitions and awards from various countries such as New York, Mexico and Florida and in the future intends to expand its scenario with art forms that involve sensory aspects complementary to the visual arts.
