Raffaello Grimaldi: Not All Wandering Souls Are Lost at Trunk Gallery

June 13, 2013 by Megan Koester in Upcoming Events with 0 Comments

Not All Wandering Souls Are Lost, a solo exhibition of new works by abstract painter Raffaello Grimaldi, opens Saturday, June 22nd at Trunk Gallery; an opening reception for the exhibition, which runs through August 3rd, will take place from 7 to 11PM on that date.

Beyond Nova, 2010

Grimaldi emerged in the late 1960s as a multimedia artist, having studied film at C.I.N.T.E.C. School of Cinema Technology in New Jersey. Constructing totem poles along the banks of New York City’s Hudson River in the late 1960s to protest against the destruction of our environment heralded his first acclaim. By 1980 he began to focus primarily on painting. He has lived and maintained studios in New York, London, Paris and Rome and is currently based in Los Angeles. His work is held in private collections worldwide.

The Blue Willow, 2010

Also known as “The Divine Expressionist”, Grimaldi’s endeavors are channeled to discovery the mysteries of life as he continues his excavation into the spiritual of abstract painting. Passion and emotion define Raffaello Grimaldi’s work. He describes his method of creating in existentialist terms. “Painting is a process rather than a product,” he says. “It’s not what you see, it’s what you feel.”

The Darkness Within the Shadow of Light, 2011

The exhibit includes two documentary films on the artist: “The Epiphany” (2010), directed by N.Y. Mathisen, and “The Hand of the Mysteries” (2003), directed by James Reed.
