The Art of Ivano Stocco @ Unity Salon

305 N Harbor Blvd, Ste 105

Stocco’s paintings are honest, fresh, and raw. “I’m chasing after something like the POETRY OF EVERYDAYNESS, or the “strange beauty” that arises when you’re running chores and don’t expect it, but there it is. I use paint and mixed media and a 2-D surface to get this across. The whole thing is about my need to process and repair. I hope it’s a similar experience for you.”
