Sandro Nocentini

Born in Italy in 1966, Sandro Nocentini started painting as a child being strongly influenced in his early years by his artist mother and mentor Aldo Bandinello, now recognised as being among the finest Italian painters of the first half of this century.

Sandro's definitive and unique style is described by himself as 'cubist - futurist'.  For him art is not just a passion but a means of expression. Through his art he finds and relates himself to others. Painting mainly human figures, he says:  "The accurate description of physical reality is not as important to me as depicting people through their most intimate and silent moments -1 only paint about feelings."

Sandro Nocentini, with his innovative canvas, bold colours and his serious attention to his craft has become an "artist to watch" and, in our opinion, well worth collecting.

"Even a brief sampling can suggest the quality, at once poetic, rationale of Nocentini's mind. His explosion of colours, where viewpoints and light sources are multiplied... his touch of cubism where contours are broken, moving away from the austere geometry, toward forms softened by freer brush work... Sandro Nocentini's style becomes a series of personal variations."

SANDRO NOCENTINI WAS THE WINNER OF THE 2005 PRESTIGIOUS SULMAN PRIZE AT THE ART GALLERY OF NEW SOUTH WALES

“The Sulman Prize this year went to Sandro Nocentini’s work My Son has Two Mothers, a painting inspired by the artist’s assisting two lesbian friends to conceive a child.  The picture is heavily influenced by Picasso, particularly in the facial renderings and in the depiction of the artist himself as a harlequin.”
