About GARDANI ART

Gardani Contemporary Artist, USA Citizen born in Quito-Ecuador, Based in Miami Florida, always having been drawn to the world of Arts Gardani started working and experimenting with different techniques and materials on his Paintings and Sculptures. Entirely self-taught he had his first solo exhibition at a young age in his native Quito. after that he realized, that is what he wants to do for the rest of his life, he knew to fulfill that dream he would have to leave his Country. Gardani believes visiting the major Art Museums is the best school to learn the higher expressions of Art.

Gardani, still remains true to his initial spirit of enjoying Art in the Magic Realism form which he has been practicing for more than twenty years, thanks to the creative influences of Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo. Frida Kahlo, Caravaggio, Rembrandt. Even though some of his paintings come from his mind and photo references he prefers to work with live models. Gardani has the ability to create a wide range of Artworks, Pop Sculptures, Still lifes, Fruits, Animal, landscapes, Contemporary Abstracts, Portraits his renowned Figurative Paintings and most recently his colorful Pop-Urban Art Artworks.

The artwork of this Artist has been exhibited in prestigious Art Galleries in United States, Europe, Central and South America. He has been commissioned for many private collectors throughout his career. As a Latino Artist of Spanish Heritage, he reflects in his Paintings the techniques used by the contemporary masters of our time like Salvador Dali, mixed with a bit of the colors of the variety of cultures that he has experienced throughout his life, this has undoubtedly given him the richness in his sense of life and the will to celebrate it through his beautiful artworks.
