Giuseppe Gambino
Giuseppe Gambino (Italian, 1928-1997) artist, painter born in Vizzini, Sicily in 1928, and is primarily known for his abstract expressionist landscape & cityscape paintings in oil and watercolors of Venice houses, churches, buildings and palaces, figurative works and still lifes. By 1945, he was working as a typesetter in Bologna, Italy and also worked in the graphic advertising industry. In 1954 he moved to Venice, Italy and soon dedicated himself fully to painting. In 1963 he and his family moved to Preganziol, Italy where he remained until his death in 1997. Gambino had many successful solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally over the course of his career from 1954-1989, especially at the 1956 Biennale di Venezia (Venice), Italy, the Quadriennale d’Arte di Rome, Italy in 1959 and the Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa in Venice, Italy. Many major exhibitions were held throughout the United States, Germany and also Spain to name a few. With help from his father, who was an official superintendent of Fine Arts, Gambino won first prize at the Palazzo Ducale in Mantua, Italy, and also at La Gallerie Estence in Modena, Italy.

Gambino’s work can be found in many galleries and private collections worldwide. He also was the theatrical set and costume designer for the comedy “The Four Rusteghi”, directed by Paul Trevisi (circa 1976), which also became a traveling play. His paintings often started by a faithful reproduction of what he called “Landscape” (Italian: “Paesaggio”, which he would often write on the back of his paintings preceding the rest of the title for the piece), and then would continue with redesigning the form that created the framework within a harmonic musicality. His works usually feature an explosion of colors and shapes which often have the feeling of being unfinished, but are beautifully held within the framework of each painting. Gambino died in 1997 in Preganziol, Italy. In January of 2001, the ‘Friends of Giuseppe Gambino’ was formed to safeguard, develop, disseminate and exhibit his work.
