Gabriele “Erno” Palandri was born in Pistoia in 1970.
He obtained the Diploma of Interior Designer and the Maturity of Applied Art at the Petrocchi State Institute of Art in Pistoia and the Diploma of Advertising Graphic Designer.
The experimentation of painting techniques, pastels, acrylics, oils and airbrushing began in the 1990s. Initially he starts from a surrealist base that flows increasingly into the figurative.
At the beginning of 2000 he leaves the colors and picks up the ballpoint pen again and begins a new path, always figurative, where the fundamental part is to represent a concept with a single image.
He performs on a panel left bare or by working the background with a mixed technique where he goes to draw (or write) with the pen. A sort of note book elevated to the dignity of an autonomous work.
Palandri has increasingly refined his techniques, to the point of making them minimal, consistent with his own vision of things.
