Painted in acrylic. Through the use of the selfie and social media, the work transports the revolutionary painter of the seventeenth century, Il Caravaggio, into the society of the 21st century. Who would it have been? Given his history, his actions and his will to self-destruct, would he have been an Internet troll? An influencer? The important number of self-portraits executed by Caravaggio in his career, finds in the selfie an adequate transposition, in modern terms, of the artist's ego.
