Reception for Kelowna Based Artist Alberto Azzi at the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art

See the self taught artist's work early November in the RCA

Kelowna based artist Alberto Azzi’s paintings often reference his love of nature and the beauty of the world – he grew up in a small mountain town in the Italian Alps – and are characterized by an intersection of realism and fantasy. A self taught artist with no formal art education, Azzi developed his unique and recognizable style of extreme details, brilliant colours, and precise techniques through the years, after retirement from a forty year career as a dentist. He paints with oils and acrylics on both canvas and masonite.

Alberto Azzi’s exhibition “Living in a Colourful World” is on view in the Alternator’s Members Gallery from October 25th to November 9th, and the opening reception for the exhibit will be held from 6pm – 8pm on November 8th.
