The composition of a painting is comparable to the interaction between the instruments in an orchestra. It is necessary to build up an art work such that the different details join together in leading the eyes of the viewer to the 'lines of force', thus creating energy and dynamics within the piece.
Biography: Having finished the course, he was able to start teaching ; the title of Professor was only achievable after having taught for a year and after having written a thesis on his chosen subject : Morphopsychology. "From the beginning of my studies I was extremely interested in morphopsychology, which to me seems to reflect the very essence of each individual. I believe that humankind is the most amazing creature that can be found on this planet. Thus, despite becoming professor of 'Art Plastique', I continued to study both morphopsychology and anatomy". The picture which formed his thesis reflected all types of technique, both classic and Modern, using all mediums, including pastels, oils, and water colours. This work gained him "le certificat d'aptitude p?gque" with honours. For the next few years he devoted his time to teaching, while further developing his unique style. He showed his works at exhibitons at les salons des artistes fran?ais, at les Independents and at le salon d'automne. In 1978 one of his paintings caught the attention of the director of a new gallery. He and Di-Maccio agreed to work together on an exhibition, which was a great success. After a second successful exhibition Di-Maccio decided to give up teaching to devote himself full time to creating works of art. Di-Maccio attempts to destroy the myth of the Suffering of the artist, painting at night, ill, alcoholic, bankrupt . His lifestyle is very different . To keep fit he plays tennis, and neither drinks or smokes, he eats a balanced diet. Working regular hours, Di-Maccio then is able to pour all of his energies into the passion of his art. His creativity is stimulated by the great composers Verdi, Mozart, Handel, whose masterpieces stimulate his artistic talents, expanding his horizons, elevating him to yet greater heights. The artist and his painting become almost as one - desiring perfection, he polishes the varnish until it becomes almost soft as a Woman's skin . "I like a painting to have certain patina, making the viewer want to touch it". Equally Di-Maccio is interested in the mounting and the frame, ensuring that these add impact to the works for the public - young enthusiast and great collector alike. Di-Maccio continues to expand his range of techniques, and was the first to combine both a scientific and also artistic approach to create a holographic work.
