ZZHK Gallery is pleased to present Gianfranco Asveri: And His Little Animals, an exhibition of new work by Italian artist Gianfranco Asveri. Over the past four decades, Asveri has created a body of work which has formed a unique style of his own.

About

Dogs, birds, chickens, cats, goats, suchlike animals and mythical creatures have constantly featured in Asveri’s works. Living with his dogs in a village in the hills of Piacenza in Italy, Asveri feels a strong connection to the surrounded nature and animals. The daily objects and people are the source of inspiration for his paintings. As the artist says, “I paint what I see when I open the window ofmy house.” His love and compassion to animals have led him to help abandoned animals, some of which have become longtime companions to him. In some of his paintings, Asveri applied a small rectangle of (white) colour with line drawing of figures and animals, like a little family photo hanging on one’s wall at home, suggesting a treasured memory with family and friends. That is what the animals especially the dogs are to Asveri.
