Nicola Verlato - dramatic visionary

here are the paintings of Nicola Verlato; I've made sure I got a representative shot of Nicola beside one of his 'Zero Gravity' works to give you an idea of scale BEFORE going into glorious detail.


Nicola Verlato was born in Verona, Italy on the 19th of February 1965. He started to paint about the age of 7, and to sell his paintings about 9. His artistic education has been quite unorthodox, he consider himself almost self thought, however, from 9 to 14 ,he spent every summer at the studio of a monk-painter ( Fra' Terenzio) in the monastery nearby his village in northeast Italy, he consider that the place where he learned how to drawing in the academic style.
