Salvatore Romano was born in Palermo on 21/07/1957, where he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts. He then moved to Florence, where he now works intensively. Among his works we find those in dotted, black and white, but also in color and informal. Salvatore also tried his hand at sculpture, where an ancient, arcane and expressionist melody took shape. Salvatore has participated in some exhibitions, attracting the attention of an introspective and profound audience, witty and aware, seriously and with elegance, with remarkable charm.
Salvatore is a contemporary New-Symbolist painter.
There are many versions of "Island of the Dead", even original in black and white, giving way to recovery / continuation following the thought of Arnold Böcklin.
Countless nudes that show a classic eroticism, immersed in an extreme passion, of a never banal duplicity with Mother Nature, Kafkaesque glimpses of a fatal introspection that lead back to the poor streets of a Dostoevskyan Russia, with their naturalness, simplicity, basic relationship between the artist and his capable, attentive and stubborn "public", which remains ecstatic in front of the images and shares its awareness in a dignified, simple and intelligent way.
