Valenza (Italy), 1951
Lover of nature and its evolution, Carlo Cane has always supported Darwinian theory. Throughout his artistic journey he has kept man and architecture at the centre of his research. A refined painter, he creates paintings characterised by a sense of waiting and suspension, in which an imaginary nature takes the upper hand. Through his emotional and captivating painting the artist investigates nature's elements and invites reflection on its fate.
Carlo Cane was born in Valenza (AL) in 1951. After artistic training in the private school of Giulia Pace Zelaschi, he attended the studio of the painter Gian Paolo Cavalli refining his colour technique. A miniaturist and artisan goldsmith for some years, he has participated in solo shows and group exhibitions in public and private spaces in Italy and abroad (including in the United States, Hong Kong, England and Spain, Switzerland). In 2011 he participated in the 54th Venice Biennale – Italian Pavilion at the Turin Exhibition Palace. He lives and works in Valmadonna (AL).
