Nothing is created, everything is transformed (it’s not from me!)

Presentation & Biography

The son of Italian emigrants, already very small, Antonio Zamariola devoted himself to drawing. For it was one of the only things that did not cost money! He will explain it. So when my father, who worked at the mine, got his envelope with his weekly pay, I took it to draw inside.”
His ambition is quickly clear: he wants to become a cartoonist. He made a quick incursion into thi Painting as a therapy.
 s field but… as a writer. Very quickly, he realizes that we have to be very strong in this area. Too much preparation work, too much documentation. It was not in his temperament. For him, it is primarily a matter of instinct, it must come from the gut.

At the time he was hired by Marabout Publishing, he learned the trade of offset photoengraver. Afterwards, he also ensures some book covers and illustrations of Marabout Flash. Unfortunately, the Hachette group’s takeover of the publishing house forced him to change jobs and store his pencils for many years. After more than 20 years in the automotive industry as a service manager, he is fired for “restructuring”.
 "Until then, I had long said that I wanted to paint. "This spell allowed me to do it," he continued. " In fact, I think it was either that or anti-depressants." For Antonio Zamariola, painting actually acts as a kind of therapy. " I paint when I feel bad. It allows me to vent all the rage that is inside me. Each painting is a suffering but a suffering that helps me to shout my revolt".

A process from which relatively dark and often abstract paintings emanate. "However, I was never really attracted by the abstract. When I start painting, I never know what I’m going to do. I go to the feeling, putting a little (a lot) of acrylic on a canvas. Consequence: "often I myself am surprised by the result! ". Surprised Antonio (or Antoine) is, seeing the interest that his painting arouses, not only in Belgium, but also abroad where he holds exhibitions on exhibitions.

His works have been exhibited in Ostend, Bruges, Rome, Venice, Milan, Bergamo, Malaga, Zürich, Berne, New York. In 2015, he became a Companion of European Artistic Merit. He is also present on the Web where he participates in virtual exhibitions allowing his works to be showcased (Renkart, Artbox Zürich 1.0, MIAMI2.0, MUVI, Premio Combat, Celeste among others. He says that he does not belong to any particular artistic movement, but he claims everything. Everything is an inspiration to him, especially music and current events.
