About PAIZANO

 
 
  • Biography

    I was born 1973 in Stockholm, but grew up in the central parts of Sweden.
    With a mother from Finland and a stepfather from Italy – the upbringing was most diverse – which has strongly made me the diverse person I am today.
    Design and creating artworks are two of my greatest passions. 

    I don’t want to label my artworks and creations, but get inspired by the simplicity of artists like Lichtenstein, statements of Banksy and the brilliants of renaissance men like Leonardo Da Vinci.

    The quest is to create something unexpected and think beyond traditional ways.

    I want a piece to be esthetically attractive and have a depth to it – with a unexpected twist. Sometimes with a thoughtful message and other times something liberating and humoristic. When I begin I rarely know how the piece will end up. I let the Creative Process guide me.
