Giovanni Tommasi Ferroni
Rome 1967

Events and characters in classical mythology are only the starting point for his poetic images which in a rather more subtle way aim at the concept of myth through an original melting pot of past and present, heroism and daily life, that the artist looks at with irony. A humane and serene, free and heartfelt way of looking at the world and life.

Biography

Giovanni Tommasi Ferroni was born in Rome in 1967.
When he started painting in his father's studio as a child, he carried on the tradition of a family of artists that goes back many generations. By working in the studio of his father Riccardo Tommasi Ferroni he was educated in much the same way his ancestors were during the baroque tradition / period.

Giovanni later studied Literature as well and specialized in Art History at the University of Rome. Both are still a source of great inspiration in his paintings today. His paintings create a beautiful fantasy world that is inhabited by all kinds of mytho-logical, historical and contemporary creatures. While Tommasi's style and choice of subjects is influenced by the style of his ancestors, contemporary icons intrigue him as well. The resulting synthesis of classical style and subjects and contemporary analytical perspective is sometimes slightly ironic but always fantastic and delirious.


His first shows were held in prestigious galleries such as Galleria Il Gabbiano (1991) and Galleria L´ Indicatore (1995) in Rome.
