Nicola Verlato was born in 1965 in Verona, Italy. He began painting at a very early age. Trained in Classical music, and with an interest in Rock, he has also composed music for documentary films. Verlato studied architecture at the University of Venice and moved to New York in 2004. In 2011, he relocated to Los Angeles, California, where he is currently based. An installation of Verlato’s paintings and sculptures were exhibited at the 2009 Venice Biennale in the Italian Pavilion. The artist’s forthcoming first monograph will be published by Gingko Press in 2012.
