WALTER GIROTTO has called Rovigo, Italy, home for 45 years.
After receiving a Teacher of Arts diploma from the Liceo Artistico in Turin in 1972, he started to paint portraits and design cartoons.
Three years later Girotto enrolled at the Belle Arti Academy and shortly thereafter, his work was exhibited on a regular basis at the Centro di arte Renoir of Taranto.
Between 1985 and 1987 he attended the annual Art Expo in New York. His paintings and drawings were greeted with such enthusiasm that they sold within the first hour of each show.
His first solo exhibition was presented in Los Angeles in 1988.
Girotto is married and has two sons.
