Carmelo Sortino

"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."

Modigliani's Muse - Oil on canvas 24 x 36 cm

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.
