Artist Statement

Gregorio Scalamogna grew up in Toronto and studied at the Ontario College of Art and Design. He attended OCAD Toronto for the first three years and completed the fourth year of his degree at the off campus program in Florence, Italy.

 Upon completion of OCAD Florence in 1990 Gregorio travelled extensively in Europe and North Africa for the next four years. He loved the diversity of culture and art that Europe had to offer and in 1994 he returned to Canada eventually settling in Vancouver, BC. 

 Gregorio’s art is inspired by nature and he continually strives to evoke and portray passion in his paintings. He embraces the creative process of painting and he hopes that his art can inspire and enrich the lives of the people who view it.
