STUNNING DETAIL GIAMPAOLO BIANCHI SURREAL ORIGINAL OIL
ORIGINAL OIL PAINTING ENTITLED 'NINJA' BY CONTEMPORARY ITALIAN ARTIST GIAMPAOLO BIANCHI. ARTWORK INCLUDES A CUSTOM-CARVED, GOLDEN FRAME AND MEASURES 28 X 28 INCHES (APPX. 70 X 70 CENTIMETERS) FRAMED.
IN 'NINJA,' BIANCHI EMPHASIZES THE POWER OF STEALTH, WISDOM, AND CUNNING AS REPRESENTED BY THE FEMALE NINJA. HER FACE IS HIDDEN TO PROTECT HER IDENTITY, BUT WHICH ALSO ADDS AN INTRIGUE AS TO WHO SHE IS AND WHAT SHE IS THINKING. NINJAS WERE SEEN AS WARRIOR-MONKS, A BLEND OF ACTION AND WISDOM. THIS NINJA IS PORTRAYED AS THE ULTIMATE BALANCE BETWEEN THE TWO.
GIAMPAOLO BIANCHI COMES FROM LUCCA (TUSCANY), ITALY, WHERE HE WORKS AND LIVES AT PRESENT. HIS WORKS CAN BE FOUND IN PRIVATE COLLECTIONS IN EUROPE AND IN THE U.S. IN 1980, A FILM ENTITLED 'GIAMPAOLO BIANCHI, QUEST'AMORE' WAS PRODUCED. HIS WORKS ARE A REPRESENTATION OF THE SCHOOL OF THE FANTASTIC, WHERE INNER EXPRESSION IS DEFINED AS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE COMPOSITION. BIANCHI AND OTHER ARTISTS FROM THIS SCHOOL AIM TO TRANSPORT THE VIEWER IN TIME AND UNDERSTANDING VIA THE USE OF ORIENTAL SYMBOLS AND SURREAL IMAGERY.
