A game of Picassian shapes. A game of Picassian shapes, only the blackbird in the center of the painting has a certain visibility, the rest is lost in the imagination, in the play of shapes. The lines intersect forming bizarre shapes, in which we can identify fish or other birds or a flower, or even a person. A dream. Or simply the vision of an artist of a better world. In his long professional experience, the artist has had the opportunity to attend great masters both in Italy and abroad, which have allowed him to perfect his art. His works have an unmistakable personality and style. His style takes inspiration from the currents of the great French painters of the second half of the 19th century and from the Futurism of the early 20th century. Two great schools to which contemporary art often turns. In the case of Giovanni Crisostomo, there is a fusion and an original evolution of these two artistic movements, which allows him to create with an unmistakable and original style and at the same time to enter into very different themes. His paintings recall the artistic windows of churches, where elements of various colors and shapes meet to create complex figures, a kind of large puzzle.
