About the Artist
Gianfranco (John) Gambardella engulfs himself in the historical connection between architecture, culture, and art. Gambardella’s focus on picturesque scenery and architecture from Italy shows his undying love for his home country. He seamlessly blends romanticism with unflinching realism, perfectly encapsulating the distinctive quality of historical landmarks. He skillfully employs warm colors, focused angled lighting, shading, and diligent brushes to add detail and dimensionality into each piece. These aspects of his style and keen attention to detail essentially transport the observers to these stimulating locales that form his paintings. Gambardella’s strategic use of perspective lends insight into a worldview where all places fit into a more significant global collective.
