raised in an artists' family where everyone made music, drew, photographed, painted, tailored, and designed, fabio cannizzaro got to know creative work at an early age. epic chinese films such as hero inspired him – especially their imagery and scenography.
by making films and photography, he schooled his eye and developed his own style. a major concern in his works continues to be the use of light sources so that certain details are emphasized without revealing too much. mysticism and the interplay of shadows are crucial to his work.
he uses chinese ink and pencil to realize his impressive images.
