Digital Artist

Lente Scura is a digital artist who combines photo-manipulation and digital painting techniques to create emotive digital paintings of subjects struggling with emotional states and dream-like environments. Lente Scura takes the viewer on an emotional journey through visually striking digital compositions filled with dramatic anguish and beauty, giving insight into the complexity of emotions of the subjects of each painting.

To convey the emotional message of each work, the artist focuses on how the human form through light and color and atmospheric ambiguity emanates energy and motion, creating at times a vortex of haunting emotional landscapes, where the artist portrays the ranges of Humanity.

Lente Scura’s art has its roots in the classical painting of Italy, American painting of the mid-1800s, and in the German Expressionism and Surrealism movements of the early to mid-1900s. Lente Scura works within these styles, allowing the artist to portray at times ethereal beauty and at times immense horror and anguish. 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 realm of dreams and all its hopes and fears and its endless struggle of voice and individuality.

Lente Scura holds undergraduate degrees in literature and in painting and drawing and a Masters of Fine Art in Digital Art and Media, allowing the artist to combine the fields of literature and traditional painting with the digital world, creating a surreal dream world that has become the embodiment of the spirit and soul of the artist.
