Gian Garofalo
Born, lives and works in Chicago, Illinois


Gian is a multi-disciplinary artist interested in materials and process. Each painting is created with colors mixed from pigments and mediums. Applied layer upon layer, the process requires patience, forgiveness and discipline. The colorful drip and stripe combinations are arranged by intuition, random selection and personal taste. These paintings consist of a rainbow of colors where each individual drip is an equally important and unique contribution to the work as a whole. Gian continually strives for beautiful, intriguing and mesmerizing.
