Alfonso Borghi’s works can be found in museums including Palazzo di Justicia (Justice Palace)-Milan, Espace Cardin-Paris, Maison UNESCO-Paris.

5NY Artists

October 2009

Under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Tahnoon Bin Saeed Al Nahayyan, the exhibition is an introduction to 5 New York Based artists each with very unique and different styles. John Varriano's paintings capture the life scenes of people on the streets, restaurants with colourful enthusiasm, Judith Miller's paintings capture vibrantly from the reflections of lights on street pavements to the golden reflections of the fields; CJ Collins are a combination of personal responses to natura phenomena captured with linear sketches that are later superimposed creating a unique personal style; Douglas Newton's pop-art style paintings capture the essence of reflections on candy wrappings and Paul Russo, with works on permanent exhibition in 18 museums around the world, restrains his creativity to monochromatic latex paintings and has been able to restrict his palette only to explore a deeper level of abstraction and synthesis of emotions that few are capable of obtaining. Opening exhibition is on Sunday October 18th from 7pm. These artists are permanently represented by Acento Gallery.
