If you are attracted by the colours and shapes of the Comedia dell'arte, or Carnival, if you're looking for a representation of Venice, the art gallery of Gianfranco is a must visit
Since over 50 years, Gianfranco Missiaja, teaches and practices of all the techniques of drawing and oil painting, enamel, acrylic, pastel, gouache, watercolor, graphic design in pencil and ink, lithography, silkscreen, etching, framing by hand in gold leaf, etc. At his studio in Castello, you can see a broad sample of his work from classic to abstract, and either acquire an existing piece or commission your very own one.
The work and talent of Gianfranco covers multiple topics within which an ample space is dedicated to both the study of the “Commedia dell’arte”, to the typical Venetian masks and the depiction of Venice and its historic center, in the magnificent views of canals, palaces, and in various aerial representations, such as floor plans and maps.
