Abstract mixed medium painting, signed: Luigi Cosentino, titled “Abstract #17” and dated 2018, backside of the canvas, canvas size 48" x 72" x 1.75" profile. Luigi’s artwork is his means of expression. His avant-garde paintings are as vibrant as the artist himself. Luigi creates a three-dimensional blend of organic lines, shapes and space. The subject matter of his pieces is intriguing, painting the intangible and marrying emotion with color. Rather than paint what is seen, he paints emotions he feels. “Each piece I make is as unique as each individual. I studied at École des Beaux Arts and opened my studio in 1975. I researched various forms and colors and was a figurative artist for over 30 years. After a period of reflection, having explored many mediums, I developed a more modern style that defines who I am as an artist. I try to incorporate different aspects of who I am into my work and am happiest when painting.” His art can be found in numerous private collections and exhibitions in various galleries.
