Bruno Di Maio

Bruno Di Maio

(Italian b. 1948)

Whether tackling seashells, eggshells, cutlery and silver, cards, flower petals, branches, or baskets, Bruno Di Maio has the ability to combine reality with the triumph of illusion.

Alongside spectacular themes, Di Maio cultivates the traditional genres of nudes, still lives, sprightly ballerinas and portraits. Although he is conditioned not only by history and the old masters, but the impressions of the modern world as well, his paintings reflect that he dreams and plays in a spontaneous and fabulous world where unseen heroes appear, just around the corner.
