Egidio Antonaccio, born in Italy, graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. Through his studies with some of the Italian masters, Egidio developed a technique which is light and delicate. By combining his work with a atmosphere of nostalgic romanticism, Egidio draws his audience into the scenery of his paintings.
Egi has made North Carolina his home since 1981. The mountains, sunlit valleys and hillsides have become his source of inspiration.
