Molfettan Faces - Gaetano Grillo

The inauguration of the most recent exhibit of paintings and sculpture by Gaetano Grillo, a Molfettan artist, was held Thursday evening at Lorusso Arredamenti in Andria. The exhibit is entitled Abbracci, which means "Embraces" in Italian.

Grillo works a great deal with techniques of collage and what is called "contaminazione" in Italian. Rather than having the negative connotations that the word "contamination" has in English, this artistic concept refers to a fusion of art forms, cultures, languages, etc.

Just looking at his hair I knew he was a creative type. ;-)

Seriously, I would also like to see some of his work...will you be showing us a few choice pieces?

Really a great portrait, much like his works. Fascinating ideas and, for what I have seen, quite well realized.
