Paolo Ferraris

Born in Torino, Italy in 1976 Paolo was raised in a home which his mother flooded with literature, poetry and art and where his father's photographic equipment was on his displosal the whole time.
Paolo's desire to become an artist, to soar above what society, geography and time has in store for one's life, hit a reality check after he dropped out of his first year at the university. His parents would not accept an unfinished education. He ended up enrolling again at the university of Torino where he finally got his degree from the “Business & Economics” department in 2001.
At the graduation ceremony Paolo was determined, silently promising himself he would never
work, even a day of his life, in the field he studied at academic level. That's how in 2008 he picked up again his beloved tool – the photo camera – and moved first to London and then on to New York as a photojournalist and portrait photographer. In 2016 Paolo opened his fine art studio “Paolo Ferraris Colors”.
Paolo's childhood, travels and love for Italy's history in comination with his introvert and thoughtful nature have created the framework for his artistic vision. Photography – rooted in the reproduction of reality – and painting – focusing on interpretations of form and color – have never been so closely aligned as today in his work. This defines also his own term about  his body of work:  painterly photographs.
