Pablo Picasso and Venice. It is the tribute that the artist pays to the great Pablo Picasso and Venice. References to the works of the Spanish artist. The maidens or the faceless statues. The harlequin with the features of the Maestro, a fundamental mask of the Venetian tradition, but also a favorite subject of Picasso himself. Finally, the reinterpretation of the winged lion, the universal symbol of Venice, a tribute to the lagoon city. 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.
