Artist: Daniele Fortuna Width: 23 cm
Support: Wood Height: 46 cm


Daniele Fortuna’s work, David Grey is part of the Phygital works signed Deodato Arte.

The work depicts the face of master Michelangelo Buonarroti’s David, a symbol of classicism and eternal beauty. The recurring fusion of past and present within the same work practiced by Daniele Fortuna is with Pop-derived bright colors.

Antiquity and modernity merge in the wooden re-proposition of the world’s most famous sculpture. Daniele Fortuna thus brings David back into the contemporary, lighting it up with new colors and shades.

Fortuna’s sculptures have classical subjects as their starting point, Greco-Roman busts that are recreated in wood.

David measures 46x23x26 cm and is made of material on wood.


This work by Daniele Fortuna is part of the exclusive Phygital project. Inside the sculpture, there is a design monitor created by the architects exclusively for Deodato Arte where you would enjoy the NFT purchased on the new Phygi.io platform.

But don’t worry, if you don’t want to buy the NFT you can still have the physical work and on the monitor, you can see a static image created by the artist himself!

Daniele Fortuna artist born in Milan in 1981, since his early teens thanks to his passion for art he frequents artists’ studios and some of the most important art galleries in the city. He completed his studies at the IED (European Institute of Design) in Milan, cultivating an interest in design in parallel with art.

He then moved for study and work to Ireland, in the south-east, near Dublin. There he worked in a lighting studio, and thus
his interest in wood, the material that would become the foundation of his sculptures, was born. Thanks to the technique of carving, wood could be composed in different shapes and patterns, allowing the artist to give plastic form to his ideas. After completing his studies in Ireland, he returned to Italy and began to create his first works. His art began to take shape and his first works in wood were born, panels formed from shaped wooden pieces, coloured and then assembled like parts of a jigsaw puzzle.

. He later moved on to three-dimensional compositions, at first animal subjects and then to Icons of Greco-Roman classicism combined with more Pop colours and contemporary features.
