Fine Artist in the language the Soul Speaks.
It isn’t always clear what purpose challenges in life play. So it must have seemed for a young Italian school boy challenged by his inability to use language to communicate with his North American surroundings. Decades later that boy is Filippo Ioco, one of the most talented artists communicating to people around the world with the language of color. For all the people who have been spoken to by his art, that challenge was the catalyst of creation that has been returned in worth a hundredfold. His paintings are now requested internationally and speak to thousands…
After exploring various traditions of expressive art, Filippo discovered his personal style of painting when he created ‘movement of color’. This is a distinctive style of painting that is made up of large sections of carefully chosen expressive colors that relate directly to an emotional state. The colors are composed in block fields or splashed spontaneously together. The final compositions hold a delicate balance between light, weight, color and movement.
Color is such a basic and constant element in our world that we sometimes forget its depth, as if we lived in black and white. Stop for a moment and look around you. Look at the myriad of colors that surround you. Rarely does one stop to examine one particular color or colors in all their infinite qualities, and experience color as an entity.
