Auguste Garufi is a true artist. And that is rare these days. His works are unique, personal. No other artist would be capable of conceiving them. They spring from a passion to express feelings that cannot be expressed in any other form. They are created by a particularly intelligent and inventive way of thinking that often involves creating new techniques to realize his vision. It is a vision that never fails to inspire, excite and amaze. I watch people’s delight and surprise at the originality of his art whenever they visit his studio and then their rush of emotions as they engage with his works. A reaction I share wholeheartedly. I have found my appreciation of Garufi’s work and its emotional impact grows and grows the more time I spend with it.
