PainterBorn : 1945. Pescara, Italy
Born in Pescara in 1945, Perfetto attended the Fine Art Academy in Florence. In the spirit of the figurative tradition, which draws from expressionism as an ideal point of reference, Perfetto has found a new and unique way of seeing what's around him.
Perfetto dismantles images and then reassembles them like a puzzle. Like a child may dismantle an object to see how it works, Perfetto dismantles scenes for studying and thereby observes the "soul" within and its intrinsic value. His use of soft colours reveal his sensitivity and the reflective nature of his work. The results reward his courage in embarking on a new way to paint and, whilst his anti-conformist approach has been criticized by some attached to the formal vision of art, Perfetto has received critical acclaim from the public and critics.
