Antonio Gravina was born in Naples in 1934, and studied at the Art Institute in the same city. Gravina has been painting since he was 15 years old and has been able to perfect his compositions and his chromatic range, making his work very collectable to collectors the world over.
Gravina's great imagination results in a wide variety of subjects. For instance his seascapes reflect quiet bays bathed in sunlight, studies of fishermen mending nets, or his interpretations of stormy seas. Unforgettable too are Gravina's street scenes filled with bustling crowds and delightful bistros. His cottage scenes cannot be overlooked with their warm soft colors, reminders of the quiet rural life.
Gravina is a true and serious professional who has dedicated himself to creating paintings that express his love for life. He has taken part in many national and international exhibits.
