Mario Sanzone was born in Naples, 11 May 1946. The artist attended the Fine Art Academy in his native city, where he continued to live and work. After his studies, he started and has industriously continued to take part in exhibitions, both in Italy and abroad. Sanzone has always received great acclaim from critics and public alike, especially for his luminous palette and original technique. He is perhaps best known for his atmospheric portrayals of the Amalfi coastline, which perfectly capture the richness and atmosphere of the Mediterranean. He loves to paint the towns and cities both basking in the heat of the mid-day sun as well as the subtle twilight effects of night.
