Ciro Palumbo was born in Zurich in 1965. After working in the world of publicity, first as a graphic designer and then as art director, he beings, in 1994, to dedicate himself to his true passion, that of painting.
It is in Italy where he falls in love with the sea and he apprentices in a modern art studio soon becoming an assistant in that same studio.
In 2006 he realized another of his great desires, to give three-dimensional form to the subjects of his works through sculpture.
This project was made up of influences taken from his paintings. Today, he works in his art studio "Bottega Indaco" in Torino.
His artistic journey is rich and eclectic with his poetic vision following in the footsteps of the Metaphysical School of De Chirico and Savinio but diverges thanks to his original and personalized reinvention of those foundations.
His works are a blaze of dreamy symbols and phantasmagorical stage-sets. He is the painter of the sea, of the islands and of ships sailing towards new undercurrents and nuances.
There is no reality more real than that of a dream. He carries a multitude of important shows on his back with the most recent and important, at the Biennial of Venezia 2011, December through January 2012 and in Torino at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni curated by Vittorio Sgarbi, December 2011 through January 2012.
