“He would grow up to paint pictures of naked women and tell dirty stories for profit.”

Born in Montreal, Canada, 1962, Luigi Monteferrante lives in Vasto Marina, Italy, where he paints, writes and teaches.

A much-published poet, and narrator, he defines his visual art as straighforward narrative, plain and simple, but in their iconic simplicity: enigma.

The stage set, the characters are portrayed facing a possibly life-changing decision, pivot points wherein the viewer’s very observation and interpretation act upon the subjects, altering their decisions, influencing the outcome, rendering the finale into a new and unexpected end.

Or simply an aesthetically pleasing experience.

He likes to work in series. In a way, they all belong to an ongoing saga entitled Figurative Narrations & Modern Mythologies; it includes the series: Sex $ Drugs £ Rock & Roll; Louis Hausarbeit; True North; Les Deux Framboises – see links.

Prolific, manic, obsessive, gregarious, Monteferrante produced Gang of Tolstoy, manufacturers of music for the savant-garde. Their most recent album: Music for Museums & Galleries, available for download at iTunes, Amazon.

Of late, he has been focusing on writing for stage and screen.

‘Monteferrante’s  paintings are charged with the present moment gasping for air in panic, looking for a way out –  a word, an expression, a memory past. Monteferrante is not intimidated by the form. He paints faster than his hand can brush the paint onto the canvas. Like a child excited to tell his story, he rushes to the end in one breath in hopes he doesn’t lose the essence of time. Monteferrante with passion confronts the painful  banality of life, knowing there’s no tomorrow.’ (COSIMO CAVALLARO)
