Professional abstract artist, gallery owner and instructor
Born in Argentina on December 3, 1969. His parents migrated to Buenos Aires from Italy for a better life and in 1978 from Argentina to Chicago. He now resides in Chicago, IL. He's fluent in Spanish and Italian.
Soon after arriving to the United States, he needed some way to deal with the culture shock and for him the best way was through painting, drawing and listening to music. After graduating high school he enrolled in formal art classes for two years and soon after he decided to do things his way. Gino does not believe there should be rules and guidelines in art. He adds, "If you truly feel what you've created comes from the heart, it's already a masterpiece. There’s nothing more rewarding than to experiment with colors, shapes and styles, taking a step back when you're finished and having a sense of artistic accomplishment". This is why abstraction is the style of painting Savarino loves.
His works can be found in many private collections worldwide, the lobby of Trump Place in New York, in many galleries in Chicago, New York and Atlanta, in 172 guest rooms at Le Meridien Hotel and most recently his paintings were used in an episode of ABC’s Extreme Makeover Home Edition.
