Fabio Constantino was born in 1952 in the Italian city of Naples. He studied at the Academy of Modern Art in his home town and showed great promise from an early age. At the beginning of his career he was heavily influenced by the work of the Renaissance masters and his paintings were classical in style. However in 1996 he embarked on an extensive period of travel around Europe where he was exposed to a whole range of new artistic styles and teaching methods. As a result his style underwent a major transformation, moving towards a greater degree of modernism. Over the last 15 years he has achieved a formidable reputation and his works are sold all over the world.
