Giovanni Maranghi, born 1955 in Florence, is a well-known artist who expresses himself through enthralling techniques and philosophical motifs.
It is easy to fall in love with his figures and the dream and fantasy world where his paintings takes us. His characters are actors in the great drama and/or comedy of life, and their roles are never the same. He keeps the metaphors, the dreams, wishes and feelings very much alive.
In his works Giovanni uses a variety of techniques and display different styles of painting, such as the classical where he work with oil paint and different kinds of stucco/moldings and collage, which takes a long time to produce. Further there is the “encausto” (a form of engraving), an ancient painting technique where pigments are mixed with wax, kept liquid and are put on the surface using a brush or a spatula and then fixed with hot tools of metal, creating marbling effects and contours. Another technique which he use in many of his work is the “resina” where the base is a form of drip painting, used for outlining contours, over which a synthetic resin which hardens irreversibly is layered leaving a transparent and glossy surface.
