"You should kiss the ground you walk on if you were born in this country— take it from an old man who once had to wear the Star of David on his shirt. There’s a safety to living in such a diverse place. It’s much more difficult to brainwash a population that is composed of so many different nationalities and so many different viewpoints."
Vanni Saltarelli was born in Lombardy in 1945. His paintings are characterized by a highly dynamic representation of the figure in motion. Saltarelli’s work has become instantly recognizable and highly collectible due to the sense of physical danger, violence and eroticism displayed in his paintings.
“The magic of his paintings lies in the powerful, sometimes painful eroticism.”
