Vito Campanella Gallery of phots.Vito Campanella is one of the best surrealist artists of the twentieth century. His master of technique and concept is outstanding while the power of his works is stunning as they impact on many levels on the spectator, a true feast to the senses. He was born in the portside township of Monopoli, Bari-Italy, in 1932. Son of a great musician, Vito was in touch with his artistic side from the cradle; soon after he was born his father decided it was time to quit touring around and he settled down opening a magnificent bookstore. The Arts, indeed, were part of his life from the very beginning. However his early years were unquestionably bitter sweet for he and his family lived nearby a military port, so during the years of the Second World War his life was quite hectic.

Just a bit more than a decade after his arrival to Buenos Aires, in 1968 he held his first important Art show at the famous Witcomb Gallery on Florida St. Such was the success –he sold each and every one of the exhibited works- that it was a turning point in his life, from then on he would fully surrender to his gift and passion: Art. Though Campanella exhibits a unique surrealist style, many critics and art specialists have tended to define him as an Italian Dali or De Chirco-influenced. Nothing better than Mr. Vito’s own words to define his style “I would say that my paintings are Campanella styled works, I recognize a variety of influences –as every human being- but I believe I have achieved a personal style… I think critics sometimes tend to label things to fast in a somewhat arbitrary manner
