Paolo Pastorino was born in Savona on August 12, 1974.
After graduating from the Polytechnic of Savona, he enrolled in the faculty of microelectronics engineering until 2005 where he will open a computer startup where he is still engaged as an entrepreneur. Son of art of mother painter, father ceramist, since he was an external child his passion and curiosity for drawing, painting and ceramic sculpture (At the age of three he created his first clay sculpture), his artistic training takes shape in the family art ceramics factory in Albisola Superiore where, from an early age, he was able to meet, with passion and an insatiable desire to learn, the artists that his father hosted in the factory (Antonio Saba Telli, Antonio Siri, Mario Rossello, Giorgio Laveri, Valter Boj, Aldo Pagliaro, Luigi Valerisce, Paolo Anselmo, Eliseo Salino, Carlos Carlè, Giorgio Venturino just to name a few.) And it is in this environment full of creative stimuli in direct contact with the master artists that you will contribute in a way crucial to his technical training and artistic expression.
Already in 1979 with the light-heartedness of a child who wants to create and thanks to the frequentations in the parents’ factory, he has the opportunity to come into close contact with the artist Antonio Sabatelli with whom he begins to explore the immediate and fabulous painting of a “crazy genius”.
In 1983, always in the parents’ factory, he had the opportunity to attend and follow the techniques of the master sculptor Luigi Valerisce (pupil of Arturo Martini and talented sculptor known in the Cuneo area) where he learned the basics of modeling and terracotta sculpture as a teenager. Just in those years he created a series of sculptor works on the theme of nature and the forest.
In 1986 she attended a modeling course in the studio of the sculptor and ceramist Renata Galbiati, refining her techniques and forming the artistic vision of her thought.
In 1987 at the age of 13 he participated in his first public ceramic exhibition at the Fiera Primavera in Genoa together with the ceramists association of Albisola and his parents’ company. In that context he manages to perceive not only the intrinsic value of art but also the more material one of the sale of the commercial object.
At the beginning of the 90’s he attended a specialization course on airbrushing technique in Genoa approaching new artistic forms of hyperrealism, alternating the use of classic tools such as the brush (varying the pigment technique passing from ceramic oxides and enamels up to more refined techniques such as oil and acrylic) and clay to that of the airbrush pen where it finds its ideal environment for the development of works made on various supports (paper, helmets, tanks and murals).
In 1996 he opened his first business of “airbrush artistic creation” creating a series of works on commission and not on various supports such as motorcycle tanks, helmets, signs, murals, T-shirts and paintings. In the mid-nineties during the diploma of electronic expert at the Savona Polytechnic he attended an extra-school course of Cad and designer where he learned the first rudiments of industrial design and CAD design. At the end of the 90s, thanks to the university studies of Micro-Electronics Engineering at the faculty of Genoa, he expanded his artistic experiments by using the computer (we are at the beginning of the IT era) to express his creativity with the technique of Digital Design Art. In 2001 he attended an internship / course in advertising techniques and 3D CAD design, in this period he refined his skills in two-dimensional digital graphics to the new frontier of 3D Three-dimensional Design.
In the 2000s, with the diffusion of digital photography, he adopted this fascinating technique as an additional means of expression and communication, and in 2004 he attended a course in photography techniques at the MEPA association and began participating in various photographic exhibitions.
In 2005 he became an entrepreneur by opening a start-up of computer trade, IT services and web / advertising graphics. In this period he has the opportunity to diversify his creativity by realizing many works (still in production) in the field of WEB advertising graphics.
In 2015 he attended a figurative painting course with the master Attilio Cicala, from 2016 he resumed the primordial art of ceramic attended two masterclasses for lathe molding by the master turner Marcello Manuzza, and from 2017 to today he attended the workshop of the sculptor artist Ylli Plaka where he learns the methods for making large sculptures and the ERNAN Design Studio of Tino Canepa and Annamaria Pacetti.
In 2017, thanks to the diffusion of the 3D printing technique, he implemented his works by fusing prototyping in eco-plastic materials and ceramic art for new concepts of his feeling. In 2018 he joined the manifesto of the “realvis movement
