Colorist Andrea Gerardi remembers as a child, carrying around his sketchbook so he could capture his sights and experiences.

"I have been influenced by my Italian parents
who brought me up in an environment
of music and art.
My paintings come from my personal experiences living in many different parts of the world.
The color, sound and vibration of these places:
Italy, England, India, Mexico, Japan,
Indonesia and The Philippine Islands
are my influences.
I lived and studied under Sir John Aldridge,
Royal Academician, who was a friend of mine."
Andrea Gerardi

Andrea's delightful paintings exude a
love of life with fauvist color and a unique sense
of composition and design.
