À propos du livre
Surrounded by turquoise waters,
Red is Jamaica,
In its violence and poverty.
Across the island
I chased the Lion traces,
I have been hearing him
Roaring and dancing.
From Kingston ghetto
To Hope Road where I finally found him
Contemplating the Blue Mountains.
His dreads mane was moving slowly
On a mystic and syncopated breeze,
Blowing through the air.

Gianni Candido was born in Belgium in 1972, from a Belgian mother and an Italian father. He got familiar with art and crafts at early age by studying antiques restoration. From 2004 to 2012 he works on his project “Bodyworks” using the human body as a living media to study light, composition, texture and color. Those years will provide him with the aesthetic formal base for his creations. In 2010, some of his artwork is sold by Pierre Bergé auctioneer giving him an official price on the international art market. His attention is increasingly directed towards a metaphysical approach and his work revolves around the notions of perception and consciousness. In 2020, he is finalizing the writing of his first poetry book “Élégies et Chants d´Aurores”, enriching his work by the use of figurative language to evoke sensory experiences. The final objective is to encourage the observer to an active thinking process and initiate an imaginary journey by developing his own interior landscapes.
