Pino Bio

Born on the cusp of a defining world war in Europe, Pino’s childhood visual memories are those of women left behind to keep the home fires burning. His mother, aunts, grandmothers, and cousins became a universe of attractive Italian women in aprons, maintaining domestic tranquility in very uncertain times. Bathed in the Adriatic light of his native Bari, these figures would later infuse the romantic canvases of Pino that speak so softly to the hearts of Europeans and Americans alike today.

Growing up with the faded glories of Renaissance art and architecture at his doorstep, Pino was in tune with the energies of a new era and, despite his phenomenal success as one of the leading European illustrators of all time, he wanted to be closer to the dynamic art center of the world, New York. He also wanted to release his art from the restrictions of others and be free to explore new avenues that had been opened by the abstract expressionists of the late 1940s and early 1950s.

Eager to leave illustration behind and begin stretching the new envelope of fine art with his fresh figural concepts and brilliant brushwork, Pino began showing his canvases to galleries in 1994. They met with immediate success among collectors and Pino began to distill over forty years of training and experience into each new painting. Combining all that he has learned from formal training and assimilated from observing the great master, Pino has evolved a mature style that is bother distinctive and deeply rooted in art history.

Feminine, ephemeral forms of flesh whose light and shadow suggest depth and mystery are contrasted with explosive passages of rich, textured color in compositions that are as much about how the artist feels as what he sees. It is the subjective illusion of space juxtaposed with an abstract acceptance of the painting’s flat surface that sets Pino’s work apart from other artists.
