Giovanni Casadei

Giovanni Casadei is an Italian artist, born in Rome in 1956. He currently lives and works in Philadelphia. From 1978 to 1980, Casadei studied at Scuola Libera del Nudo (Free School for Drawing and Painting sponsored by the Academy of Fine Art of Rome) under the instruction of the Armenian artist, Alfonso Avanessian. From 1980 to 1981, he was enrolled at the Academy of Fine Art in Rome, then from 1981 to 1983, studied further under Alfonso Avanessian, during which I experimented with drawing, oil pastels, dry pastels tempera, watercolor, acrylic, and oil paintings.

In 1983, Casadei moved in Philadelphia. In 1985 he worked as an assistant painter to Dennis Aufiery on a mural for the Philadelphia Zoo. Later he enrolled in a four year certificate program at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He likes to capture with the medium of painting a moment that exists in me and that is inspired by light, colors, and the visual abstractions that nature offers us in every moment in our life. From 1997-2004, Casadei taught painting at Manayunk Art Center, Main Line Art Center, and Wayne Art Center, all in Philadelphia. He has been showing and selling his work in Philadelphia and other major cities for the last twenty years.
