“Pugliese’s paintings take the viewer into a tranquil pleasure state…Orange, red, and purple hues are erupting in the background then covered with drawing to form something between a flower and a firework. It’s electrifying but the longer you look at it, the happier and more peaceful your mind becomes.” – Elizaveta Mironova
