Sunset with the artist - Antonio Sannino

Antonio Sannino at Treville Positano - July 7th 2021

An evening with the artist Antonio Sannino, surrounded by its magnificent paintings in a wonderful location as Villa Tre Ville, in Positano, has been the great event planned for July 7 in collaboration with the Liquid art system.
The Italian artist Antonio Sannino raised in Naples but has lived in different cities like Rome and London, to be back in his hometown and collaborate with the Liquid art system since 2008.
His research starts from afar and has its roots in the landscape tradition linked to Naples, thanks to the events related to the Grand Tour during the XVII century, which saw the city as an inevitable trip. From the deep study of this cultural awareness, Antonio Sannino's art is enriched with contemporaneity, with a new and unprecedented look.
Sannino experiments with a technique that guarantees an almost pop flatness: the use of resin capable of vitrifying oil colors spread on aluminum support: the result is a thin and smooth surface that enhances the compositional depth, a sort of no-landscape, through which the artist no longer wants to represent reality, but alludes to it, preferring to grasp its strongest expression. His water surfaces go beyond a simple reproduction of a stretch of water but include waves and surrounding rocks that are uniquely tactile; the large painted cities, taken at dusk or in the darkness of night, appear iridescent in the windows' reflections colored lights.
The aluminum works have a unique technique, sometimes almost opposite to the traditional application of paint on the surface. Some lines and textures are obtained with aluminum, which comes out as the artist removes color from the surface.
Surrounded by the beautiful location of Villa Tre Ville, the aperitif Sunset with the artist Antonio Sannino was a wonderful chance to have a close look at the magnificent works meeting the artist.
