Paolo Ferraris 

Paolo credits his parents with his first brushes with Art.

​Born in Torino, Italy in 1976, Paolo was raised in a home his Mother flooded with literature, poetry and art.

​Paolo’s childhood, travel and love for Italy’s history combined with his introverted and thoughtful nature have created the framework for his artistic vision.​ Photography (rooted in the reproduction of reality) and Painting (which focuses on interpretations of form and color) have never been so closely aligned as today. Thus Paolo’s definition of his body of work: Painterly Photographs.​ Paolo’s main influence is the work of J.M.W. Turner, John Singer Sargent and Francis Bacon.

​Paolo currently splits his homebase between Portland Or  and Italy. He and his wife Brandy remain dedicated to exploring the world.
