Emillions Art presents The Journey & Evolution of Contemporary Master Artist Dario Campanile in its 2,000 square foot showroom at 837 5th Avenue South, Suite 202 in Naples, Fla. open Monday through Saturday, 10 am until 5 pm, Feb. 18, 2021 – Feb. 28, 2022.
The exhibition features more than 30 fine artworks covering abstract expressionism, spiritual surrealism, landscapes, seascapes, florals, oil on metals and contemporary. Curated by Emillions Art founder and global art consultant Marlissa Gardner, the 10-day show highlights include three never-seen-before paintings as well as the debut of Spirale, recent honorable mention winner at the 2021 International Spiritual Art Awards.
Born in Rome in 1948, Dario Campanile began painting in oil at the age of 14. Surrounded by the work of the great Italian masters, he is almost entirely self-taught using a variety of media to extend his means of expression. He earned early encouragement from metaphysical artist Giorgio de Chirico and surrealist Salvador Dali who coined him the “Roman Master,” for his birthplace and classical painting style, greatly influenced by Caravaggio and other Italian Masters.
Campanile first visited the United States in 1973, where his work was so well received that he moved permanently to California. He worked with clay sculpture, cast paper sculpting, and cast paper bas relief. His artwork caught the eye of actors Valerie Harper, Carl Weathers, and Cheech and Chong, musician Herbie Hancock, casting director Lynn Stalmaster, and writer Harlan Ellison, all of whom are among the many collectors of Dario’s work. There he became a well-known Hollywood artist, creating widely recognized album covers and was chosen from hundreds of artists to create the 75th Anniversary logo for Paramount Studios. His beautiful design of the famous mountain symbol is seen on every Paramount publication today.
Dario Campanile’s artwork is available now at Emillions Art.
