Adriano Buldrini


From the very outset Buldrini's painting has always featured a minute and passionate attention to the disign element, combined with a remarkable mastery of the use of the colour. This technical expertise sets him firmly within the great tradition of Florentine and Tuscan painting, of which he feels himself to be a worthy follower. It is, however, in the conceptual research that his works assume a decisively contemporary character. The harmonious evolution of man, through his spiritual potential, is at the heart of Buldrini's poetics. This research leads Buldrini to make his painting a contemplative art, which somehow urges the observer to become active in the quest for his own divine nature. An intimate nature of stellar origin which, according to the Artist, is the only part which has a real chance of development within the human being. Colour, sound and the Art in general, stimulate and nourish this part of the human nature. Series "Garden of Light", a parallel world, a reminder of the spiritual nature. Oil colours and gold.
