PainterBorn : 1932, Palermo (Italy)
Lello Barresi, born in Palermo in 1932, began his artistic activity around the year 1950. During this period he attended the Milan School for Poster Design and, at the same time, worked as a decorator at a publicity agency.
Berresi then enrolled himself at the Fine Art Academy of Brera, where Master Carlo Carra was director (some years later he would become his atelier). He also spent time working with important sculptors, learning different techniques of sculpting with different materials. Whilst studying for a teacher's diploma for artistic education he worked as a designer of jewellery for an Italian firm, famous throughout the world.
He spent some years in Paris studying, in detail, the Impressionists, and in 1980 moved to Rome where he actively participated in the artistic life of the town with artistic and cultural exhibitions, obtaining a great response from the public and critics alike.
Paintings by Lello Barresi can be seen in many galleries and in private collections worldwide. Two of his works are on display at the Gallery of Modern Art in Rome.
