Enzo Forgione

Biography

I live and work in Turin, Italy, where I gained a Degree in Scene Design at the Fine Art Academy. After graduation I followed a  range of experiences between art and design until  2006 when I started painting full time. In 2009 I had my first solo exhibition in Turin.

I work in oil colours and specialize in orchids, which are the subject of my research of an ongoing series. In my artworks I don’t think to merely represent reality but to reveal it instead. Due to the size  of the subject the paintings basically are macro-vision meant to provide details not visible to the naked eye. Also, I  want to capture on canvas  the emotion triggered by the subject in order to share and  engage with the viewer .
