SOUTHFIELD, Mich., March 25, 2015 – Park West Gallery is inviting the public to view artwork from one of the last great illustrators of our time.
The gallery presents “Pino: An American Master,” featuring 77 works by Pino Daeni from March 30 to May 17 at Park West Gallery, located at 29469 Northwestern Highway in Southfield. This is the exhibition’s only venue.
Park West Gallery serves as the official representative of the Pino estate. The collection of works by the celebrated artist includes paintings, drawings, watercolors and hand-embellished graphic works, all of which will be on exhibition at special estate sale prices.
“Never before has Park West Gallery exhibited such a complete collection of the works of Pino,” said David Gorman, gallery director of Park West Gallery. “Park West is truly privileged to be a part of Pino’s legacy as the exclusive dealer for the estate of this American master.”
Born Giuseppe Dangelico in Bari, Italy, Pino studied at the Art Institute in Bari and perfected his talent for painting nudes at Milan’s Academy of Brera. When he immigrated to the U.S. in 1978, his renderings caught the attention of multiple book publishers, and Pino’s illustrative art dominated the market. He painted around 3,000 covers in his lifetime, including working with the then unknown model Fabio.
Pino switched to fine art in 1992, and his paintings appeared in galleries throughout the U.S. His works focus on the female form, using his mastery of technique, body language and color to convey deep emotions from his subjects. Pino passed away on May 25, 2010.
Admission to the gallery is free for the public. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. For more information, call 248-354-2343 or visit www.parkwestgallery.com.
