Peter’G – Bubble Maker (Limited Edition Original Serigraph)
Limited Edition Original Serigraph
Size: 32cm x 41cm / 12.5” x 16”
Set among the cool arches and quiet pathways of old Jerusalem, this sweet image shows children exploring the city’s sprawling brickwork. A boy wearing a kippah and a book stands next to a young girl in a blue dress; further up the stairs, another pair is descending onto the same small plaza. A blond child pushing an unusual contraption – the bubble maker – crosses the area, leaving a trail of floating bubbles in their wake. This piece shows gorgeous shading and reveals a quiet, beautiful Jerusalem scene that will take pride of place on any wall in your home.
Peter Gandolfi was born in Parma, Italy. He graduated from the University of Rome in 1970 with a degree in Chemistry, then went on to lecture and serve as a research fellow in Italy and Israel between 1972-86. In 1982 he settled in Jerusalem, where he increasingly devoted himself to painting and, since 1986, has worked as full time as an artist. His work is characterized by a cartoon-like, whimsical style, bright colors and fantastic detail and often feature Jewish scenes and bubbles. His one-man shows have appeared in Jerusalem, Rome, Tel-Aviv, Haifa and Florence, and books bearing his covers and illustrations have been published internationally.
