Milton Blas Verano, 2015.

Milton Blas Verano was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on March 24th, 1984, but moved to Italy at the age of 7. As a child, he collected rich experiences and images that were then poured into his first works and which revealed his native artistic talents. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts of Catanzaro, Italy in 2007, after having been in the art arena since 2000. His creativity and skills have been growing progressively up until the present time.

At present he is working on his new paintings, which show genuine images of his life experiences-narrations or glimpses of personal stories that spring from vivid memories. Other paintings are based on old photographs sold at market, which have captivated the artist's attention, images that portray people, but which lack a personal connection since they are not from his own experience.

"My painting is concerned about the creative process, it tells, silently, life experiences stories, unique moments about my chilhood and about all those anonymous situations that are part of the memories of any individual".

His work has been included in exhibitions worldwide including: "Lo Stato dell'Arte", at the 54th Venice Biennale, Italian Pavillion, Tese di San Cristoforo, Venice, Italy (2011); "Nuove Acquisizioni", MAON Museo d'Arte dell'Otto e Novecento, Cosenza, Italy (2013); "Centro/Periferia Federculture", Tempio di Adriano, Rome, Italy (2012), Palazzo Ziino, Palermo, Italy (2013); "Cultures Maison", Maison des Cultures de Saint Gilles, Bruxelles, Belgium (2012); "Open Space 1: The Human Dimension of the Contemporary" Galleria Nazionale di Cosenza Palazzo Arnone, Cosenza, Italy (2012); "4th Wall Gallery", 4th Wall Gallery, Los Angeles, USA (2009); "MIUR", Accademia di Belle Arti di Napoli, Galleria del Giardino, Naples, Italy (2010); "Arte Ego / Una Ricerca D'identità", Centro Luigi Di Sarro, Rome, Italy (2013); "Incubarte", Sala la Gallera, Valencia, Spain (2013); "Zone Scoperte", Galleria Bazzini 15, Milan, Italy (2008); "Pagine Bianche d'Autore", SEAT S.p.A., Turin, Italy (2010).
