Biography

some notes about me

Mirko OlivieriI was born around 3/4 of the 20th Century in Florence, where I still live & stain canvases with much passion.

Since childhood I've always loved drawing and as teenager I started getting closer to oil painting, which is today the medium of my work. Drawing and painting are my primary form of escape. It's even because of this that I've decided to carry on this passion working together with other artists who gave me the chance to better my technique - which in turn enabled me to look at the world from a somewhat different perspective.

Of those, I'd like to particularly thank Oliviero Giuntini, an old school painter, authentic Florentine. Although you won't find any of his work on the internet, anybody who's ever been around the artistic circles of Florence have surely met him. Today I keep working, searching for the perfect harmony between color and light.
