His art has somehow post-apocalyptic elements, it is filled with contrasts and ironies and covered with a fascinating realist surrealism.

The paintings are all oil on canvas… And, as, at least so far, I suck with brushes and paints, I tend to find them even more dazzling. I must confess I’ve seen more realistic oil paintings, but that in any way diminishes Einaudi’s merit for achieving such level of mastery.

Einaudi is surely one of my most intense influences. Works like Robotomii and the Inner Beauty series are steeped with Fred Einaudi’s morbid irony, and several of them use the photographic references “collage” technique, also used by Fred, although they don’t get even close to the richness of detail of his paintings.
