Lente Scura takes the viewer on an emotional journey through visually striking digital compositions filled with dramatic beauty, giving insight into the complexity of emotions of the subjects of each painting.

This mixture of styles leans to the dream quality of Lente Scura’s art, allowing the artist to focus not on reality in terms of environment, time, or location, but in the realmof dreams and all its hopes and fears and its endless struggle of voice and individuality.
