Gianni Strino (Italian, 1953)

Gianni Strino was born in Naples, Italy where he currently resides.
After completing his studies at the Neapolitan Artistic Lyceum, he enrolled at the Faculty of Architecture, but attracted by the fascination of the pictorial arts, he gave up studying and dedicated himself, full-time, to painting.
A still life and figure painter, Strino knows how to treat his light and shade with an absolutely sure technique. His works today express the unique maturity of his talents.
Though he is constantly seeking new expressions in art, Strino's art always sticks to the fundamentals of painting: exquisite drawing, composition and color. Today his works are found in numerous prestigious public and private collections throughout Italy and America.
