The World’s Biggest Oil Painting

A masterpiece with the dimensions of 9m (height) x 27m (width) x 3.5m (depth in the mirrored area)

The height of the painting is 9 meters and the width reaches almost 27 meters; it is believed to be the world’s biggest oil painting drawn by a single artist. In 1997, by request of the Tunisian government, Di-Maccio’s unprecedented masterwork was shown to the public at Nuestra Senora de Los Angeles and shocked the whole world. However, that was the first and last time the painting was exhibited in public. Since then it has become almost a mythical piece of art. In July 2013, the time came to show the masterful oil painting to the public once again. The picture was displayed in a better way by placing mirrors on its sides, enabling it to perfectly show the image of “infinity” expressed in Di-Maccio’s visionary world.

Exquisite Artistry and Sophisticated Technique

Di-Maccio’s exquisite artistry and sophisticated technique, influenced from studying anatomy and architecture, were developed through deep analysis of the skills of old Renaissance masters such as Leonardo da Vinci.

3 Years of Creation

It took Di-Maccio 3 years working alone to complete this giant and elaborate painting.
