Mario Sanzone was born in Naples in 1946. He attended the Fine Art Academy in his native city, where he continues to live and work. After his studies, he started and has industriously continued to take part in exhibitions, both in Italy, across Europe and the USA.
Sanzone is perhaps best known for his atmospheric portrayals of the Amalfi coastal line, which perfectly convey the richness and atmosphere of the Mediterranean. He loves to paint the towns and cities of Europe both basking in the heat of the mid-day sun as well as the subtle twilight effects of night.
His stunning original paintings have a fascinating quality. He has taken classic Impressionism and given it a fresh, modern twist, making his style truly timeless.
With his vivid palette of rich blues, greens and sparkling yellows Mario Sanzone captures the beauty of The Amalfi Coast and beyond in an extraordinary way. With twinkling lights in the distance Sanzone’s original paintings offer a unique, rarely-seen perspective of his chosen enchanting locations.
Sanzone’s dazzling landscapes become increasingly abstract when viewed more closely, thanks to his amazing use of light and colour and quick brushstrokes in traditional oil paints.
Sanzone has always received great acclaim from critics and the public alike, especially for his luminous palette and original technique.
