GENE POMPA Introduce yourself, especially for a painter, it's very easy, just show their works and it is already well under way, but talk of their lives begins to be a bit 'more complicated.
My full name is Generoso Pompa but, as a child, I was called by the diminutive of "Gene" with which I sign my work today. They tell me that I was born on March 11, 1952 in Alexandria, where I lived a childhood beautiful and unique (at least for me).
In Egypt, he was born to Italian parents, they called me "the Italian", while in Italy, having been born abroad, they call me "the Egyptian", so do you. As mentioned, I had a happy childhood living in a family that loved art; my grandfather Generoso Pompa and my grandmother Angela Comi, were opera singers at the scale of Milan; my father Vittorio and my mother Anna Parisi embraced art, ranging from theater to music, from poetry to painting.
In 1962 my parents, for the future of our three children (the eldest son Alfredo that makes the singer-actor, Angela and I), made the plunge and decided to leave the paradise of Alexandria and then to move to Australia making a small stage in Italy, in Rome, where I live now for over forty years.
As a boy I started to paint as many copies the works of great masters of the past, especially the painter of "Vanished Rome", Ettore Roesler Franz, the Esedra Gallery in Rome I commissioned.
In the '70s, with the death of my father, I had a long break pictorial, after selling out of necessity, my work to which I was affectionate; I, therefore, removed from the world of art, to then come back in the '80s with renewed enthusiasm. Since the 90s, alternately works to works purely surreal landscapes made with my particular technique, in relief, using brush and spatula. I confess that from the earliest times that I exposed my new technique, immediately met a happy and surprised reception from the audience and, subsequently, from critics who encouraged me to continue the search and refine my technique which, with the time, led me also to obtain numerous awards and national and international recognition.
Since 1998 I opened my own studio-gallery in Rome, in via Bellinzona, 12 in Trieste district where receive friends and visitors who can see me at work.

GIANCARLO MONTUSCHI - Artist Faenza, long transplanted in southern Tuscany is the antipersonaggio for excellence. Painter, ceramist and sculptor of money, is expressed in a language naive, fairy-tale, and basically fantastic, with veins alchemic-esoteric. The fact that he was born (in 1952) in Faenza, land of excellence for ceramics, and that he "breathed" in the years of training, revitalizing the turmoil generated by the influence of Pop Art on young artists of that time, has It highlighted in Montuschi two complementary lines of expression and formally different. He participated in numerous exhibitions throughout the eighties: in Faenza, Florence, Arezzo, Verona, Bologna, Bergamo, Turin, Bassano, in Sweden and in Zagreb.
