Antonio LORO

You are here: Home » The Artists » Antonio LORO

Oil on Canvas

From his Venetian roots one feels the depth of emotion in each of pieces. Based on classical training, he departs with controlled expressionism to broaden the impact and connection to the observer. The layering of tone upon tone of color enhances each piece with a patina that draws one ever closer.
