Name: Sergio Ianniello
I create art that is expressive and aesthetically pleasing. I draw in a variety of media, paint in acrylic, watercolour and mixed media. In addition I have created sculptural and printing works. I predominantly paint portraits but also enjoy painting wild life and nature scapes. I am interested in the different and subtle ways that various media can be applied to canvas and paper.
I always like to thoughtfully plan the composition of my work, with an emphasis on contrast and illumination, but my best works take on a life of their own and convey a sense of mystery. I am currently completing a Diploma of Visual Arts at TAFE Qld where I am experimenting and refining my artistic style in a variety of media and aim to continue developing as an artist.
