Famous Italian artist Caravaggio's studio is full of chiaroscuro (light and shadows)! He shows Mati and Dada how he used chiaroscuro to make very dramatic paintings. His ‘Basket of Fruit’ is very realistic and includes some rotting fruit and dying leaves as well as perfect fruit. In his painting ‘Narcissus’, the figure from ancient Greek myth staring at his reflection seems to arise out of darkness. Caravaggio’s technique is to start by painting the canvas with a dark colour, then adding the lighter colours.
Seven-year old Mati is a cheerful girl with a wild imagination and a zesty passion for art. Along with her eccentric sidekick Dada, she’s magically transported into the lives of the greatest artists in history.
Together, these two friends go on exciting adventures with the likes of Leonardo da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dali. Hand in hand, they travel throughout time and art, solving mysteries and sometimes getting into trouble ~ all the while learning from the Masters themselves.
This wonderful animated series is a fun and imaginative introduction to art for budding artists everywhere!
