Artist: Born in Italy, Oriano Galloni’s desire to sculpt began at an early age. His passion to express himself through creation only richened by age 18 when he enrolled at the Accademia Di Belle Arti in Carrara. His work is in major private collections throughout the US and Europe and is included in the collection of the Grand Rapid Museum / White Forest Project, New York.
Oriano previously collaborated for Arts for India charity auction "Colors of Spirit" in 2011 for the luncheon at the Guggenheim Museum. His creation celebrates the spirits and souls of disadvantaged children helped out of poverty by this important and unique educational arts organization.
