Pietro Spica is a contemporary Italian surrealist artist. He was born in the small Venetian town of Dolo in 1953. Spica has traveled much in Central and South America, and his biomorphic forms take inspiration from the pre-Columbian rainforest of his imagination. The visual emotions displayed on Pietro Spica's canvases are rich and engaging, and subject to change according to the viewer's fancy. Pietro Spica has dedicated over twenty years to the development of his virtuoso watercolor technique. Here, friendly objects and beings can be recognized, although they do not follow any of reality's rules. Pietro has illustrated books for children, notably by Italo Calvino, and Bruno Munari. For the past ten years he has held seminars in watercolor technique, whose scope was to encourage his student to give vent to their imaginations by learning how to see rather than merely draw.
