Giuseppe Mariotti

Giuseppe Mariotti

Información de Images of Eyes.

Giuseppe Mariotti was born in Todi (Italy), a very old, lovely town located in central Italy, in the region of Umbria, founded around 2700 B.C. and subsequently an Etruscan and then Roman town. Mariotti completed his secondary school education in classical studies, and then earned a degree in Architecture at the School of Architecture of Rome University (Italy). During his university years, his scientific background contributed to the maturation of the two innate aspects of his personality: the imaginative and the rational. He has never attended an art school, so is self-taught.
Mariotti is fascinated by the Italian Renaissance and the great artists of that period--the emotional balance and rigorous composition of Piero della Francesca, the plasticity and drama of Caravaggio and Rembrandt, as well as the poetry and delicacy of Vermeer. He is equally fascinated by modern painting for its freedom of language as well as its capacity for continual innovation.
Mariotti's artwork has received various prizes and awards, both in Italy and internationally. He lives with his wife, Diane (who is originally from New York), his two children, Deborah and Tommy, their dog, Odie, and four cats.
