Conversation with Italian Painter
A talk featuring a series of
paintings by Mantova-based painter
Adriano Castelli and inspired by Dante’s
MAY 23 at 11Am
On Sunday, May 23 we are hosting Mantova-based painter Adriano Castelli, who will present a series of paintings inspired by Dante’s Divina Commedia. Castelli will also explain how he explores mystical and spiritual themes through the application of light and symbolism.
Adriano Castelli was born in Asola, Italy, in the province of Mantova, where he continues to work and live. After a long period dedicated to black and white graphic art, Castelli started to focus on colors by using different media: pencil, pigment, watercolors, pastels, and oil. Through the use of light and symbolism, he explores mystical and spiritual themes. Italian art critic and historian Flavio Caroli described him as a “modern-day [JMW] Turner”. He has exhibited in Italy, France, Germany, and the United States.
THE EVENT WILL BE PRESENTED IN ITALIAN
