Gianni Versace built a fashion empire by creating the brand Versace. His designs were filled with bright, bold colors that accentuated the womens body. He was extravagant just like Giovanni. Versace is a big influence of Giovanni’s. They both have a heavy Miami influence which is clearly evident in both Giovanni and Versace’s work. In this iconic image of Gianni Versace, DeCunto implements the spirit of Giannis designs in the painting. Using bold colors and gold to create a dramatic statement piece that truly represents the soul of Versace.
