Giovani Zanolino

My name is Giovani Zanolino, I was born in Perigueux France on the 7th of June 1986. I moved to the island nation of Cura ao as a baby, where I was raised with my five sisters and 4 brothers.

I Moved to Europe to pursue studies in Art, but after one year at the Art Academy I decided I was better off without those teachers. After 4 years of travel and finishing my bachelors in English language and culture in France, I moved back to Curaçao. I would then enter an apprenticeship by my Father (The prolific Caribbean Artist Philippe Zanolino).

The first 7 years of my career were mostly filled with traditional Art mediums such as, pen and ink, pastel, acrylic paint, sculpture, photography and collage (mostly in mixed media form). Then I would enter 5 years of mostly digital work, photoshop, animation and video, but always applying elements of handmade works into the digital works.

I really started missing the uniqueness of handmade works, and started applying my digital work to various different mediums, such as glass, mirrors and textiles, as well as applying  layers of traditional art to my printed work.

Iʼve been grinding about 16 years and have won various prizes, such as Top undiscovered french artist living abroad, participated in 20+ expositions locally and abroad (Miami, San Fransisco, Palo Alto and Venice a.o). I recently restored a Unesco heritage building on Curacao, where I currently live and operate my Zanolino Gallery.
