Artist of the Month
The walls of Burlap and Bean are currently
featuring the work of Giovanni Arcamone
Giovanni was born in a small town in the province of Avellino, Italy. He immigrated with his family to the United States at the age of seventeen. From childhood, the artist was inspired by the beauty of his native Italian landscape and began to realize his lifelong passion and talent for painting. Frequently returning to his hometown of Sant’Agata Irpina, other breathtaking locations on the Amalfi coast, and other regions in his never-ending pursuit to capture its inspiring picturesque settings. He also is able to convey from his present life direct observations that include his various travels in U.S.
The experiences of his work have allowed him to develop extensive expertise with color, technique and texture. The artist has refined a technique in which the theme and material are closely associated. Each composition has a very distinctive style where the fusion and the density of the color scheme complements the subject. This unique technique of applying color by palette knives creates a rustic texture suggesting a tactile vision.
Giovanni is an associate member of the Delaware Valley Art League.
