Who? How? Woh! What the...

GAëtano was born in Normandy just as West Germany triumphed at their home football World Cup. He didn’t choose a career in sports, however, as he was too busy practicing his self-taught painting skills on his parents' walls. Aged 10, as Celine Dion sang in front of Pope John-Paul II, GAëtano entered into art class rebellion by not handing in any work to the teacher. He claimed: “Art cannot be graded. It is the view the artist offers to the viewers’ sensibility, for them to appreciate, be moved or think their 6 year old can do better”. This attitude earned him some quality time in detention, where he could indulge his interest for life drawing to his heart's content. He now lives between Paris and London. His paintings have since travelled to Germany, France, the UK, Belgium, Japan, the USA & China.

A Light Touch

A Light Touch -GAëtano- (oil on canvas, 60x60cm) “It was that time of dusk when there is a—deepening of the interior shadows. It is a melancholy time: all you need do is switch on one lamp and the inside and the outside will separate, held apart by the reflections in the glass, and evening will […]
