About Paolo Cervino

I believe that painting is mute poetry(in the words of Leonardo Da Vinci) , music for the eyes, caress and delight for the soul. My paintings do not dwell on a single subject but they are all inseparably linked by the same poetic. The central theme of my work is always life in its facets. Whether it's a landscape be it abstract or not, the focus of the work is always a reference to an emotional state, so the only real permanent theme in my work are the emotions.


Paolo Cervino was born in Brindisi in 1974. He moved to Turin in 1994 where he took a degree in Civil Engineering and where his passion for painting started growing up attending museums of contemporary art and since December 2005 he started with exhibitions , so in 2008 he already has three personal exhibition and different collective in his curriculum.
