Biography

Elio Stefano Pastore lives and works in Giaveno, near Turin (Italy).

His artistic life started in 1992 with digital art (fractal art, digital painting, rendering, laser engravings on aluminum), then switched to mixed media and finally to the drawings and paintings made using classical techniques.

In recent years he has dedicated himself both to paint and draw portraits and female figures related to the Art Nouveau and Belle Epoque periods, and to continue digital production with the "Moving people" series.
From 1994 he shows his works in over 130 personal and collective exhibitions.
Elio Stefano Pastore is a member of Promotrice delle Belle arti and Piemonte Artistico Culturale in Turin (Italy).
