Nino Pippa's italian portraits reveal more about the artist than any biography could. Born on the island of Sardinia in 1950, Nino used oil paints to reflect his mediterranean surroundings from an early age. Having completed his fine arts studies in Cagliari, Rome, Florence, and Venice, the young artist parted from the Italian and French Impressionist to create his own personal style. Nino developed his talent for vivid brushstrokes and unique colors, enabling him to support himself with his art. Since moving to America, Nino has often returned to his birth nation with paintbrush in hand to capture the life and architecture of Italian cityscapes and coastal villages. These prized portraits have found homes in private collections throughout the world. TeleMaxArt and Yessy Art Galleries represent the artist.
