Giacomo Nizzardo is a painter, born in 1971, who lives and works in Switzerland.
“The freedom of expression is something that I like very much. It connects different mentalities. I don’t want to offend any religion, nation or culture with my paintings. My passion and emotion I paint on the canvas. I was born the son of a Sicilian immigrant family and raised as a Catholic. What moves me are the different religions and people. In my paintings also emerges religious depictions with everyday culture. Body jewelry, tattoo and body painting are symbols or amulets in certain nations. I love reading and looking at picture books. Documentaries about different cultures interest me much.”
