“An immense universe-building talent” – Alexis Rocher, editor-in-chief at Fana de l’Aviation
The passion and talent of Lucio Perinotto have been recognized since 1992, when he was admitted into the very exclusive group of official French Aviation Artists. His attention to detail, especially in his representation of light and reflections, adds to the authentic nature to his work.
As Alexis Rocher, editor-in-chief at Fana de l’Aviation, points out in the preface of the book, Lucio Perinotto has an immense talent for “building universes.” Neither does the human dimension escape the painter’s attention: “Whether pilots battling a frenzied dogfight or relaxing passengers, […] his works almost always includes such characters. Man at one with machines.” Lucio Perinotto paints airplanes with a soul.
Colorful works, realistic sketches, historical anecdotes: let the magic of this painter’s genius transport you!
