Painting wildlife is the passion of Dino Paravano, who was born in Italy, lived in South Africa for 44 years and is now an American Citizen. His unique understanding and ability to portray animals in their natural habitats, is brilliantly expressed in pastel and oil.
Mr. Paravano was initially educated at the Johannesburg Art School. His natural artistic talents were further enhanced by extensive study tours to Europe, England, the United States and South America. Ultimately he is mainly self-taught, having perfected his technique of using light, which is evident in all his paintings, and for which he is famous.
Traveling the world over in pursuit of subject matter, and the years spent in South Africa afforded Paravano the privilege of viewing the animal and it’s natural habitat, in diverse settings, in all the national and private game reserves in the region. The “heartbeat” of Africa truly made an impact on his palate and to the discerning viewer the earthy tones, which are present in all his African studies, reflect his ability in capturing the essence of the bushveld. Although most of his work is executed in his studio, it originates in the field.
Mr. Paravano has had 14 one-man exhibitions in the major cities in South Africa, London and New York and his work has been exhibited in more than 200 international shows (many of which are museums). Since 1985, he has participated in every one of Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s “Birds in Art” and Wildlife in Art” shows and tours. In 1993 Paravano was the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum Master Artist.
Dino Paravano has also been an exhibiting member of the prestigious Society of Animal Artists since 1979; his work included in tours and chosen for the poster and catalogue cover in 1996. Since 1992, he has been a member and exhibitor of the Pastel Society of America. His work can be found in Museums, corporate and private collections in SA,
UK, USA, Australia, Europe, and the Orient. These include; Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Hiram Blauveld Art Museum, Bennington Center for the Arts, Kruger National Park, Mala Mala Game Reserve, S. African Reserve Bank, Total Oil SA, S. African Broadcasting Corporation, as well as most S. African commercial banks, etc.
He is a recipient of many awards, which include “The International Wildlife Exposition in Ohio, Best of Show and Merit Award –1984”, “Society of Animal Artists – 1991”, “Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum’s Master Wildlife Artist – 1993”, “The Elliot Liskin Memorial Award Society of Animal Artist – 1997”, “Night Walker Award – 1996 and 1997”.
Dino Paravano has been featured and has had critiques in numerous magazines, catalogues and newspapers internationally. Included in “Who’s Who in Southern Africa”, International Who’s Who of Intellectuals – Cambridge”, numerous interviews on radio and television.
