PIVA GIANNI
"According to art critic and curator dr Alain Chivilo, Gianni Piva artist is one of the few who created an innovative painting starting from modern art, in fact in the Chivilò text, today Piva creates visionary compositions that investigate the micro and the macro cosmos: a spiritual journey to which the artist emphasizes strength and soul".
Gianni Piva (Treviso, 1967) shows an aptitude from early age to color and painting. He follows his family, throughout his youth, travelling in various countries around the world and at the end of his studies he begins working in: travel, fashion, art, cinema, theater. The breakthrough is arrived with the decision to leave for the Caribbean, where Piva, in a primordial nature of extraordinary beauty, was able to express his natural talent enriching colors and bright lights. Piva’s works reveal a profound artistic sensitivity that springs from the soul to express itself in intensely vibrant colours, the assertive brushwork pregnant with artistic vitality, joy of living, praise of nature, spiritual richness and messages of hope. After early success in the Americas, Piva returned to Italy in 2000, meeting international gallerists and art dealers who made his work known all over the world.
