Gianni Strino was born in 1953 in Naples, Italy where he currently resides. After completing his studies at the Neapolitan Artistic Lyceum, he enrolled at the Faculty of Architecture. However, still he was attracted by the fascination of the pictorial arts, which led him to give up studying and dedicated himself to painting full-time. 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. Today his works are found in numerous prestigious public and private collections throughout Italy and America. Exhibitions: Expo Arte Bari, Expo Arte Bologna, Galleria Bianchi D’Espinosa, Galleria Ars Italica Milano Galleria Esedra Roma and Galleria Carosone Positano.
