Painter Nino Scimeca Joins Boston-based Canvas Fine Arts

Canvas Fine Arts, a Boston-based artist representation agency, has added an Italian artist among its roster of artists: Nino Scimeca.

Born in the village of Bolognetta, in the province of Palermo, the 52-year-old artist studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti in San Martino delle Scale and the Accademia dell’Arte in Palermo.

“My paintings revolve around the human being, with his metaphysical nudity,” says the artist in a statement on his website. “A nude man is only a “man”, in which it is surely easier to see deep meanings without interference.”

Other Canvas Fine Arts artists influenced by Italy are Kathryn Sanfilippo, who recently held an exhibition under the auspices of the Consul General of Italy, and Giovanni DeCunto, who is an International Fellow for Renaissance Study at the University of Padua in Italy.

"Pensieri e biglie" (Thoughts and marbles) by Nino Scimeca.
