Gianfranco Asveri was born in 1948 in Fiorenzuola d’Arda, in the province of Piacenza. He did not attend any academies or study art, he started painting in 1969. Art became his life’s main purpose. He lives and works on the hills of Gasperini surrounded by his beloved dogs. His instinctive way of painting originates from the observation of reality: “I paint what I see when I open the window of my house”.
