Lee du Ploy : “I met Gianfranco Asveri 27 years ago… Initially when seeing Asveri’s works they seem humorous and light, this is only so because of the subject. Texture which is intrinsic to our psyche is the nature to convert a simple message with clarity and direction to meaning, it conveys the message with attitude and as we all know attitude correctly manifested creates great painting. In order to do this with confidence you need to be dedicated to the extreme, and to make your art your life. This is what Asveri has achieved.”
