The otherworldly nature of Sicilian Manfredi Beninati’s soft focus dreamscapes is reminiscent of a childhood of fairytales. Beninati’s figurative works reflect a state of innocence that exists behind the subtlety of pastels and candy colours. These paintings depicting children surrounded by flora and fauna seen through layers of light and softly applied colour have been described as “somewhere between Bosch, Renoir and Thomas Kinkead”. Does anyone remember the magic of The Water Babies?
