Giovani Zanolino

Born on the 7th of june 1986 in Perigueux France. He tries to create art in a state of communion with the universe letting the hands simply do the work they are willed to do. Except for 8 years abroad, studying and travelling, he has lived on the island nation of Curaçao most of his life. He went to the Art academy in Zwolle, the Netherlands, and finished his bachelors in English language and culture in Limoges, France. The goal of his art and life is to try and find balance and understanding. Ultimately to learn about Love and the higher self. He hopes that the images created may play their part in a continually evolving existence and hopefully continue to inspire people to aspire for the truth.

He is devoted to the creative process, often spending upwards of twelve hours a day working. He explains that these periods give him great pleasure, but admits that his days are not always so easy, especially when balancing the demands of part-time work against the pursuit of his artistic vision:

“[It] really fluctuates – the good periods. Sometimes, [for] months at a time, [my days] consist of waking up, [drinking] coffee, [working] twelve hours [per day] with tiny breaks here and there to… eat and drink a little something. But basically, [I work] twelve to fourteen hours straight on the good days. [On those days, I am] so productive that when I go over the production of the day, I sometimes even get tears of gratitude. [On] bad days, I can… barely get a proper hour of work in. Motivation can dwindle and inspiration won’t be forced. [I also have to do some] self-promotion, as well as taking care of business. But honestly, I wish I could have twelve hour creation days all the time. It is such a pleasure that [I am] willing to let it consume [me]’

Giovani is available for commissions, collaboration with individuals and organisations in need of unique artwork for their projects, events or to help spread their message.
