Pippo Vincent Monastra
was born 1957 in
Acquedolci, in Sicily.
He lived for many years in Stuttgart, Germany
before he decided to
move to Portugal in 1997,
to paint fulltime.
His main focal point has been his work on canvass but he also developed during the last four years a special technique to work on ceramic tiles. This is according to our knowledge unique.
The motives of his pictures are not taken from life modelling. Frequent themes in his work is the human face and body sometimes so subtle that they are only recognizable at second third or fourth glance. Despite a variety of styles and techniques there is a definite signature in his work.
