Gilberto Sartori, Paduan painter and graphic designer, graduated in pictorial decoration at the Pietro Selvatico Art Institute of Padua, under the guidance of the Masters Bortoluzzi, Nardo and Strazzabosco, lives and works in Padua.
In 1984 he began his exhibition activity which immediately met with well-deserved success both with the public and with critics, exhibiting in the major national art fairs and numerous are the cities that hosted his personal exhibitions (Bergamo, Bologna, Livorno, Mantua, Milan, Perugia , Pisa, Treviso, Trieste Venice, Verona, Vicenza as well as obviously Padua, just to name a few).
Important reviews obtained by his work from Paolo Rizzi to Carla Rugger, from Gabriella Niero to Sandro Marini and others such as: Lidia Maggiolo, Mario Klein, Lino Ranzato, Chiara Frigo, Sergio Dalla Val.
His painting is characterized by the universality of the message of peace and serenity that his works emanate, crossed by the typical "scratches" that cross the subjects, be they landscapes, views or objects of everyday life.
The very elaborate and very personal technique materializes with the application of extremely thin layers of matter which restore to the eye the sensation of stratifications, almost as if one were observing several superimposed paintings and made legible simultaneously only by the corrosive action of time.
Over the years Sartori is increasingly attracted by the search for the effects obtained rather than by the choice of a figurative subject and the results, even without denying his past, seem to reward him with works of refined elegance and rare sensitivity.
His shy character and the great passion with which he has always dedicated himself to painting keep him away from the limelight, but his works speak a language that knows how to be heard by those who appreciate technical qualities as well as aesthetics of a painting.
