Gino Campagnaro is an emerging Australian artist based in Bondi, Sydney. He has always been close to Sydney harbour or Bondi where there are swarms of people enjoying warm weather.
Campagnaros latest paintings were inspired by the latest holiday to Palm Springs in 2019.It made him realise the beauty in isolation. The sun creating moody lights on the architecture and landscapes, people hiding inside air-conditioned mansions from sweltering heat. Everything seemed simple, in a complicated way.
Campagnaro paints with simple thick brush strokes and muted soft colours, providing space to detail a focal point of the painting. His aim is to make the complicated simple. His background in graphic art and fashion has led him to keep the edges, shadows and shapes simple and distinct, whilst keeping a thick painterly style to make it analogue and not digital.
