Saul Zanolari was born on September 18th 1977 in Mendrisio – Switzerland. Since he was a child he has been intrigued by art and its forms of expression, above all painting. He has always been convinced that everything can be said and denied. What really makes the difference is the way to present something, its aesthetic aspect. However, he has always been more attracted by the content than by the surface of things. That’s why he never attended a school of art but graduated in Philosophy in 2004, specifically in the History of Classic Rhetoric. He switched his interest from traditional painting to digital painting in 2005 and In the same year started to exhibit his works in galleries all around the world.
