Peter’G – Hide and Seek (Limited Edition Original Serigraph)
Limited Edition Original Serigraph
Size: 36cm x 36.25cm / 14” x 14.25”
This sweet serigraph offers a vibrant snapshot into the lives of Jerusalem’s residents. Peering through a tall archway, we see a family hanging laundry out to dry across from a sunlit, blossom-filled tree; beneath them, a child stands against the blue front door. Children and floating bubbles fill the scene, with a couple of kids sitting on top of large bubbles preparing to fly away. Beautifully evocative of a carefree, childhood afternoon, this captivating piece will take pride of place on your wall.
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.
