About Vincenzo Stanislao
There are no upcoming events
Born in Erice,15th December 1974, Vincenzo graduates in accounting in 1993. Subsequently, favouring his passion for drawing and painting, he attends the Fine Arts Academy of Palermo, where he graduates in 1998.
These are the years of the first direct contacts with the public, the years of collaboration with artistic associations, the frantic exhibition group which lead him around Sicily.
In '99 he begins working as a decorator in a laboratory of artistic ceramics, where he learns the art and tradition from the old Sicilian ceramic masters. He has the chance of discovering and experiencing the possibilities of clay modeling, that will lead him to creating the first "terracotta" sculptures.
Determined to create a "showcase" to give visibility to his work, he learns, self-taught, the basics of web graphics.
Just the graphic and web design (along with painting) becomes the profession that will accompany him for more than twenty years of his life.
In 2001, in fact, during a stay in London, Vincenzo becomes a web designer at a British publishing company. He will remain there for several years.
The need to express his creativity is so satisfying, but never complete: Vincenzo continues to draw and paint, devoting time and space to his talent.
Today, more than ever, after returning to Italy and now forty years of age, Vincenzo feels a strong need to devote himself entirely to painting, and he does so in Trapani, the city where he chose to live after his experience abroad.
Stanislao writes with his brushes, his oils and his knives pages of anthropologic and intimate human condition. He has passed through differing pictorial experiences of various “isms” choosing that most suited to his personality, in the differing moments of his life.
His favourite techniques are charcoal drawings, oil painting and mixed materials. Never interested solely in the surface appearance of things, Stanislao's work is concerned with the inner structural and emotional core, the density of form and feeling and spiritual significance.
