Biography:
 Santo De Vita was born in Italy in 1946 and immigrated to Canada when he was 9 years old. Even at this early age,he displayed a remarkable aptitude for art,spending hours sketching and drawing.

Totally self-taught, he found most of his inspiration in nature and his love for animals attracted him at first to paint mostly wildlife. He held several one- man shows throughout the years and published 3 limited edition lithos, all sold out.

In 1990,a gallery in France hosted a very successful exhibition of his work.This was a turning point in his life.From there came the need to start painting different subjects.His fascination for the 0ld Masters drew him to study their work.His style became more airy,his brush strokes more free.

He travelled extensively in France and Italy and the European landscapes soon became his favorite subjects.But he also liked painting the wonderful scenery of British Columbia where he lived for over 50 years.

In the spring of 2009 , he decided to experiment and do a serie on BRITISH COLUMBIA in a style totally different from his more conventional European landscapes . He let his imagination go wild , used stylized lines and shapes in a explosion of colours. The result was outstanding and he created 20 paintings . He called that serie THE SPIRIT TREES.

But his love for the Old Masters was stronger and he went back to his traditional European landscapes.This short intermission , though , gave him a boost and his next paintings came out more powerful than ever . He felt he had reached a point where he was finally satisfied with his work.

Unfortunately, January 18th 2010 his life was taken away suddenly . Santo will be remembered not only as a talented artist but also as a very kind and loving person .

Santo's art has been shown internationally and his work can be found in several private collections in Europe and North America. He has had numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout Canada and France. Several of his paintings have been chosen for open edition prints and are sold throughout the world.

He will continue to live forever through his wonderful paintings , this is the legacy he has left us and we will never forget him.

Artist's Statement:
 Painting is my passion and has been ever since I was a child. In my paintings,I try to create a mood that the viewer can identify wether it takes him to a familiar place or a place he has dreamed about. My aim is to capture light,color and depth and if I can manage to do that and create an emotional response from the viewer,then I have succeeded. To me,that's what art is all about.
