In 2005 Giorgio started a two year travelling experience through South Asia, Australia , Fiji and Indonesia. It was in Australia that Giorgio- as a professional artist- established more than 10 shows in North Queensland and NSW. While based in Byron Bay, Australia he expanded his artistic talents into major musical/ cultural events such as the “Blues and Roots Festival of East Coast”, as well as organized live shows that included body painting and street theatre performances. He collaborated with the “Revolution Surf Factory and Museum” for the creation of a collection of original surfboards with his distinguished artistic style.
In November 2007 he moved to New York City, where he worked on the creation of a series of books about his life and works; “4” and” Left of Center”. His work has been viewed at different galleries and is a strong supporter of the art movement in New York City.
Giorgio had a four months exhibition at the “Atelier” Residences ending in May ’09 which became the spark that ignited the creation of the Baron Gallery movement. Giorgio now lives and paints out of his gallery in Hell’s kitchen in New York City.
