Silvano Assensi

Silvano Assensi was born in 1933 in Piaggione near Florence in northern Italy. His interest in sculpting began at age eight and his artistic studies began in Lucca at the Istituto d' Arte. He sculpted with Ivao Bertania, painted with Giovanni Gianell, and most recently Mario Bendanalle. He came to America in 1960, where he establisehed his own commercial studio. Since Silvano's return from his beloved homeland, he has renewed his vision and passion for his landscapes and seascapes. Silvano, born with the desire to create a visional perception of his dialogue with life can be seen in the reality of his paintings. His chromatic pallet of nature comes alive with canvases in poetic form of communication with expressing typical impressionismo.
