Brazilian Artist Felipe Salsano's Oils featured in February 2014

Friday February 8, 2014- February 26, 2014
Brazilian artist Felipe Salsano, an artist who sees people rather than borders, faces rather than nationalities. Born in Brasilia, Felipe later traveled to Italy as a teen and became committed to becoming an artist.

His striking ability to capture details in his paintings, reminiscent of the Italian masters, is perhaps due to serving as the eyes of his mother, blind since before Felipe was born. It was Felipe's mother who encouraged him to seek out new experiences, an to not fe...el limits.

In 2006 Felipe traveled to Florence and attended the Fine Arts Academy, where he graduated with honors in 2010. He was able to see first hand Italian masters, who contiinue to inspired him. He then studied with Florentine master Andrea Ortuno, who taught him several painting techniques.

Felipe is also known for the beautiful faces that are frequent subjects. He loves the variety of expressions and cultural backgrounds, as well as the beauty in every faces. It is also very important to Felipe that his paintings also reflect the dignity inherent in each person, and he chooses a variety of faces with different anatomic characteristics.  Felipe avoids being described as an artist with a particular style as his work continues to evolve.
