Giuseppe Faraone, 1954 | Impressionist painter


Born in Picerno (Potenza), Giuseppe Faraone attended the Art School of Potenza, before moving to San Donato Milanese on the outskirts of Milan, where he still lives and works. Here he started his relentless pursuit of a variety of drawing techniques and the use of colors.
He understands the art of painting, having perfected his talent in Italy and abroad. Faraone fined tuned his skills in the Impressionist style by painting in the same places where French Impressionism was born.
The scenes depicted in his works of art are many, but in particular, he focuses on the stunning views of Milan. Unlike the French Impressionists, who represented a satisfied and happy society, in the paintings of Faraone we find the Milan that works, where everything is moving.

Roelof Rossouw, 1957 | Romantic Impressionist painter

Roelof Rossouw was born and grew up in Benoni, near Johannesburg. As a child he had a passion for comic heroes like Tarzan, Cisco Kid, Flash Gordon and Tintin which, with the artists of the sixties, inspired him to draw his own comics. Already at the age of fourteen Roelof started making oil paintings of landscapes and portraits.
When he was seventeen, a European art tour opened the doors for his vision to pursue art and travel. He gained a National Diploma in Arts and Design at Wits Technicon that taught him the value of training and not only relying on his raw talent.
In April 1882, whilst working for Medusa as a graphic artist and medical illustrator, he discovered modern impressionistic artists such as Ken Howard, Bernard Dunstan, Max Agostini and admired their loose style in painting.

Claude Monet | Inondation à Giverny, 1886

Claude Monet | Inondation à Giverny, 1886

In Inondation à Giverny Monet has created a vibrant landscape that pulses with dynamism. With the patchwork of colors that makes up the rolling hills of the landscape in the distance, coupled with the expansive stretch of water that carries the fragmented reflections of Giverny’s church and neighboring houses on its mirror-like surface, Monet has captured the effects of the natural light as it illuminated the region, and the atmospheric quality of the landscape as a whole, with remarkable results.
