Inside the packaging will be included a printed sheet containing the narrative related to this canvas. That's the story behind "Goa" painting: Goa - Jenuary 1988 “Do you remember when we were twenty? Do you remember that morning? Do you remember how fresh the sand was the first time we set foot on the beach in Goa? It seemed like another world to us ... we ... we were looking for enlightenment. I smile thinking back at how we were so unaware, but still full of perspectives. We still didn't know how many fathers we would have to kill to achieve harmony. When you are young, harmony seems almost like giving up. In all that confusion, where everything seemed possible- even rejecting all your teachers. It’s difficult to take yourself in hand… you know…..? It’s much easier when you have achieved a certain inner peace. You start to accept when you lost control in the past. You learn to accept failure with good grace and perceive that the end is in fact really a new beginning. You know I think that growing up is like working with a chisel as a sculptor who slowly chips away at the right points creating a new sculpture.”

Gioacchino Saltagrillo Gambatesa is an italian painter living around the world. The key to read the work of this artist is to pair his painting along with his diary. Every painting belong to a story and every story belong to a place he visited around the world in the past years. I suggest you to read every artwork description to fully enjoy his vibrant canvases. Going down to the nitty gritty...I met Gioacchino on a cool afternoon in the autumn of 1983. Walking along the pavement I met this boy, in his early twenties, with his hands in his pockets staring at the sky. I walked up to him and ironically asked him: "Anything new up there?" He carried on looking at the sky and very seriously said "I already know this light and these colours perfectly, now this is what I call home", then he looked at me straight in the face and said "It's time I dedicate myself somewhere else, don't you think? " I nodded. From that day on we became great friends and in these past years we have shared our good and bad times, our travels,our passions and although it pains me to say this, sometimes even our loves. What I can say about Gioacchino is that he has always been, socially speaking, on the wild side..little inclined to social conventions, to the compromise of being a citizen and having a homeland. From an early age he used painting as a means of communication and travel as a bridge between his artistic research and his philosophy of life. I could tell you about the thousand ordeals of Gioacchino Saltagrillo Gambatesa, but I let his art do the talking. I hope that, as was the case for me, by looking at his works and reading his writings, you are able to lose yourself in those remote landscapes and escape far away from this hectic life, even if only for a few minutes.
