Client Surrealistic Painting into dreams and symbols
Skills Living and moving the metaphysical and surrealist artwork

Project Description

With the „Pittura metafisica“ which means even „surrealistic painting“, the Italian painter Orlando Donadi hijacks the visitor into a world of dreams and symbols, far from the reality. Orlando Donadi, born in 1943 in Treviso, near Venice, brings the „Pittura metafisica“, which was launched in the 20s of the last century, to life again and moves between metaphysical and surrealist painting.

Donadis painting is accurate, mysterious and seems to be far away from the reality. He uses only natural colours in his paintings. In order to complete his paintings Donadi covers the work with a wax film, giving the final image a very special shine.

Clear colours, a mystified reproduction of objects and emphasizing the sculptural values are indicative of Orlando Donadi, who still lives and works in his native town. Donadi regularly participates in national and international exhibitions.
