Philippe Casanova, Baroque Painter

Born in Paris, I live in Rome.

First I dedicate myself to the comic strips,
Then I turned towards the painting.

 I was tunned of by figurative language, astonishing, marvellous, at the same time sacred,
While visiting the abbeys of Mittel Europa.
The baroque universe became my homeland.

After completing my studies in the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts of Paris,
I elected Rome as the main place  to pursue this idea of beauty.

The interior scene are usualy connected with neo-classical style.
I try to blow a baroque sense of rythm, movement, strong and deep contrast,
And most of all the driving role of the light.

Everything has to beat faster!
