888 Featured Artists

Dario Campanile

Galerie 888 is proud to be the East Coast representative for our Featured Artist, Dario Campanile. 

This talented and amazing Fine Artist, originally from Rome, has lived in Hawaii and California

for the past 30 years. Coined the “Roman Master” by Salvador Dali, Dario is a distinguished

world-renowned Master Painter with a 55 year history!  Additionally, Dario was chosen to

redesign the 75-year Paramount Picture logo. Dario’s portrait of Dalai Lama was part of a

world tour that traveled internationally for 5 years. While Dario has painted Realism and

Surrealism for most of his career, he’s now focused on Abstract and Abstract Expressionism art.   

His work is colorful, cutting edge, multi-dimensional, and full of movement.  I am thrilled to be

representing Dario!

Although this magnificent artist is no longer with us, her artistry and her words describe what painting meant to her through her Artist's Statement:

     "My paintings spring from a love and appreciation of Nature, filtered through a meld of ever changing life experiences. The art reflects what I see now and what I have experienced throughout my life. In this process my inner response and outward expression are constantly providing creative challenges.

     When I look at one of the wondrous natural scenes which surround us, I feel the need to portray the emotional impact of the scene, more than the objects themselves. In expressing my impressions in abstract form, I am consciously freeing form and color from Nature to focus on the essential order of things as I see and feel them.

     In my daily living I strive to become a better person and to improve my conscious contact with a higher spiritual being; and in my art I constantly strive to attain a higher level of expression".
