Gennaro Santaniello Artist Bio:
I was born in Italy in 1980, in Naples, where I still live and work today. I have been painting professionally for 10 years, and I am self taught, with no formal art training. I have an university education pretty far from fine art studies, but I always had a strong passion for art. The center of my artistic production is the figure. Usually I use the faces and bodies as part of a message that I associate with some simple word, phrase or concept that completes the meaning. Or is the word itself that refers to the figure, as for some titles. I like to think that the viewer of my work, in addition to the concept of harmony and beauty, can find the time, watching my canvas, to reflect on itself, society or life. I think it is important to force the viewer to participate in the discussion, perhaps by supplementing it. The technique I prefer is oil on canvas, because it allows me to work with the nuances and to return more often on the work. I also like to paint some nuances of pop art.
