“I believe that the strength of a painting lies on the emotions it might trigger in viewers without spending too many words talking about it.”
Contemporary botanical painter, Enzo Forgione is based in Turin, Italy where he got a Degree in Scenic Design at the Fine Art Academy. After graduation, he had many experiences in applied arts and design until 2006, when he started painting full time. In 2009, Enzo had his first solo show in Turin and has since been actively exhibiting in Italy and abroad. The artist contributes with workshops and tutorials on the UK magazine 'Paint & Draw’.
Enzo has taken part in an art project titled 'Sensazioni Artistiche', curated by Wikiarte Gallery (Bologna) in collaboration with Giorgio Mondadori Publishing, which aimed to follow emergent artists' work in their career through a series of catalogs promoted in many exhibitions in Italian galleries and in the USA. He is a member of the Society of Botanical Artists and in 2016 SBA's annual exhibition was awarded the Great Art Award. Enzo's work is centered on several series where the space between a hyperrealistic inspiration and a more extemporaneous painting leave space to experiment. His artworks are held in private collections in Italy and in the UK. Visit the artist's website to see more of his works and discover details about his career.
