Part 1 of 4: Interview and studio tour with Nicola Verlato. We discuss his current projects "The Merging" exhibited in experimental form at Nuit Blanche Toronto 2016, and "Hostia" a planned monument to Italian cultural icon Pier Paulo Pasolini, among others. We get into cave painting, and the significance of figurative painting and sculpture for human beings, as well as beginning to explore the aesthetic and theoretical ideas that shape Nicola's work. A tour of Nicola's studio shows how a Renaissance painter might make use of the digital tools and other opportunities available today.
