"My artistic interest always lies in recognizing and playing with shapes, colours and forms in the world around me. Then I translate that information into cohesive artworks that reflect my passion for life. My artworks tend to be large in scale and colourful. I call them Baroque Contemporary."
Born on the Italian Island of Sicily, Carmelo Sortino emigrated to Canada in 1965 where he now lives on the West Coast of British Columbia. He is a self-taught artist, directed by my passion for art. Carmelo has been painting most of his life but has worked as a full-time artist for the past 35 years of artistic bliss.
