Paolo Semenzato was born in Venice in 1956, the city where he still lives and works. He began painting self-thought, when he was a boy, also winning various prices. Now he is a professional painter. Over time he received great critical consensus and achieved excellent results in many national competitions. He has participated in several shows and his works are permanently exhibited in Palermo, Rome, Padua, Hangzhou (China), Melbourne (Australia) and Beirut (Lebanon).
The artist does not paint with the brush but with the spatula, not at the easel but on the flat. His work is completely permeated by a peculiar stylistic code, that makes his paintings unmistakable at first sight. Observing the paintings by Paolo Semenzato, the viewer does not want to look for clues that could reveal the affiliation to an artistic movement or school, but on the contrary, he would only like to lose himself in the charming abstraction of the compositions.
Semenzato’s inventive language is not the expression of restlessness or inner conflicts. He seeks a synthetic representation of reality, a perspective on the world, far from intellectual sophistry.
Real is not impossible, actually into reality, everything is possible, all becomes possible.
