Gabriele Di Matteo Is Awesome

Hello loyal fans. While searching around online for pictures of Fidel Castro I stumbled upon a website displaying the artwork of Gabriele Di Matteo. Now, I had never heard of this artist before and, frankly, there does not seem to be much information available about his work, but he apparently is an Italian artist who did a series of paintings of famous people in the nude. You see, on yahoo images the first hit for “Castro” was this painting of Castro and Nixon meeting in the nude (edited for your protection):

Due to my inquisitive mind I decided to check the link out. I was brought to a website with many different paintings of the same style. It is actually some fascinating/amazing work. The images are hosted on http://www.neen.org, but it requires that you input an e-mail address for access so I do not know what lies there. I do know that the “Naked Humanity” page is available without providing an e-mail address.

My thirst for knowledge grew as I tried to discover more about this man. To the best of my knowledge, the works are a part of a series entitled “History Stripped Bare” which Matteo produced between 1999 and 2005. NYU seems to have the most intellectually provocative of the pieces on their website. It does not list the title of the piece, but it depicts the Kennedy Assassination. As a student of history I recognize the impact this moment in history had on millions of people. I feel no overwhelming emotion regarding the incident myself, as I did not live through it, but I wonder how seeing this would impact people who did live through the event. If anyone knows art, or has access to information about Gabriele Di Matteo, I would really appreciate anything you can tell me.
