Biography
Marco Boni, excellent restorer of antique paintings, and modern artist, who belongsto an antiquarian family. His workshop is located in the heart of San Frediano, two steps away from the famous gate and the Santa Rosa Tower, in via Lungo le Mura di Santa Rosa, 3I was born in this part of Florence and I still live and work here. I studied at the Art Institute of Florence where I got my Arts Master. I started my training with Maestro Restorer Mario Gensini,a very famous and important restorer of antique painting of Florence and Europe, when I started my work experience both in Italy, Paris and Teheran. After many years spent with my Maestro, I acquired great experience in the restoring technique and opened my own workshop, from which many famous and prestigious paintings found their way. I affirmed myself amongst the biggest antiquarians and private clients of Italy. From these uninterrupted contacts of works of various periods, I got the inspiration to create my own painting style: "Art is an exclusive human factor and man starts where his control and choice begins" Canvasses inspired mainly to the classic Michelangelo's sculpture and to the marble statues from the Medici Chapels. However, the most important one was the Michelangelo's David, with a revisited, realistic technique, less expressive, but more elaborated with a melancholic trace. Some of the Eur sculptures fill the other works, which have been made with tempera and oil. Other inspirations came from the French sculptor Auguste Rodin, and Giambologna with their fascinating bronze shadows and Luca della Robbia , Antonio Canova.
