Perugino, an important Renaissance artist, studied with Leonardo da Vinci and Alessandro Botticelli in the workshop of Verrocchio. He is the author of the first cycle of frescoes in the Sistine Chapel (1471-1472), and later became a major source of inspiration for Pinturicchio and Raphael. Therefore Perugino is the link between the beginning and the end of Renaissance. This artistic project follows in his footsteps but is developed within a contemporary framework. Created using three different printing styles: copper engraving, stone lithography and silkscreen in four-color printing, three pillars of Christian iconography, Christ, the Virgin Mary and St. Sebastian, are represented with a modern twist. The semantised myth aims to express a new consciousness through the modern language of tattoos, investing the old with new meaning.
