Alessandro Tomassetti’s Male Muses

From an early age, artist Alessandro Tomassetti (born in Toronto, Canada, 1970) acquired a taste for fine art during summers spent in Rome on family visits. Especially inspired by the Italian Masters of the Baroque and Renaissance eras, such as Caravaggio and Bernini, he studied Fine Art and Art History at McMaster University, specifically focusing on lithography and painting. In continuation, Tomassetti enhanced his artistic foundation by studying Computer Animation, which led to creating special effects for the movie industry in Los Angeles, California. Dissatisfied with the lack of autonomy involved with film work, Tomassetti went on to study Fashion Design, starting his own menswear label named Filius and launching a concept store called All Purpose.
