Artist of the moment….Sandro Chia

 

Sandro Chia was born in Florence, Italy in  the year 1946. For his artistic education Chia attended the Bella Academy of Art  located in Florence. Chia’s work can be described as a social realist with a modern twist. I love his style as it reminds me of the great mural and Works Progress  Administration painters such as Diego Rivera.

Price range information: Works range from $4,0oo to $150,000. The artist creates many prints and works in watercolors, gouache, and oils.

Less than one month ago our dear art loving friend James Kalm went to a great show featuring Sandro Chia and we tag along!:

What a unique style! I enjoy the level of abstraction he uses in his figure work.
