The Albuquerque Fresco by Ilia Anossov is a paradigm of a brilliant modern fresco. Its technique is on the Grande scale, 23ft by 19ft. Viewing it is reminiscent of watching a gigantic film, for this fresco incorporates not only cinematic techniques, and reminders of the most brilliant art, but also resounds of the painting of late modern artists with a flair for whimsy, like Jean Miro, and Paul Klee...

  FRESCO PAINTING
 .

Affresco ( In English usage, “fresco” ). Painting done on freshly laid wet plaster with pigments dissolved in lime water. As both dry they become completely integrated. Known as “true” fresco, this technique was most popular from the late thirteenth to the mid-sixteenth centuries. The common assumption that all mural painting is fresco painting is an erroneous idea. It is true that one can in fact paint on fresh plaster, or intonaco, to make a painting in affresco or a fresco. In true fresco the artist must start applying his colors on the wet (or fresco) intonaco as soon as it has been prepared and laid on the wall. The colors can thus be absorbed by the wet plaster. When it dries and hardens, the colors become one with plaster. Technically speaking the plaster does not “dry” but rather a chemical reaction occurs in which calcium carbonate is formed as a result of carbon dioxide from the air combining with the calcium hydrate in the wet plaster.

Lime Cycle - plaster for fresco painting

Space Fresco - Carbon Based Life + Carbon Based Art It's a Rock. But it's Art. And it's in Space.
carbon-art-fresco-formulas-color.gifFresco School and iLia Anossov, announces the next stage of the ambitious project "to have a true Fresco being painted in every town", by literally reaching for the stars - by launching the first ever artwork, a true fresco, into space. Fresco is a carbon-based medium with natural pigment bound within calcium carbonate, which is a rock, able to withstand the rigors of space and time. Carbon is the backbone of all known naturally occurring life on the planet Earth. Thus, as Anossov says ..."Fresco as a carbon-based art becomes a true symbol not only of the Homo Sapience as creators, but of the life form on our Planet at large." While launching fresco into space is a symbol of our intelligent life on our Blue Planet, it is also a symbol of our culture at large - people regardless of race, nationality, time; a symbol of our creative spirit since the beginning of time.
