About this project

This piece is a portrait of the Italian artist Giuseppe Coco who lives and works in Como, Italy. His studio is very close to Lake Como which is one of the most beautiful places in the world. For centuries the water from the lake has been used to dye silk for the city’s silk industry - an industry which is now under threat.
