Training
Marco Gasparri (1957) is an Italian artist who lives and paints in the Netherlands. He grew up in Tuscany, the cradle of the Italian Renaissance art. His talent for drawing and painting manifested very early at school where he was able to create admirable portraits of his classmates. In 1975-1978 he graduated at the State Institute of Art at Pisa and in 1978-1982 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. He studied in particular the art of painting and the techniques used by Italian masters of the 16th and 17th centuries.
 
Development
After his training at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence Marco Gasparri was active as a graphic designer and illustrator. He worked for several customers in Italy, among others the publisher Mondadori, for whom he made some illustrations for children's books. Since his arrival to the Netherlands in 1997, he is focusing mainly on his work as a fine painter. It is actually a great passion for him to paint his remarkably fine realistic oil still lives.
 
Speciality
Marco Gasparri stands in the tradition of Italian fine painters. His genre is the still life wherein a simple composition can become very interesting as to the expressivity and emotional quality. Attention for detail, refined oil painting technique and rendering of light are characteristic for his art. They produce still lives with seemingly quiet dynamics, where the simple objects sometimes composed with fruit or vegetable, are able to excite specific emotions. Marco Gasparri exhibits regularly in the Netherlands and in Belgium.
