The "Twins" came to Maui 25 years ago from Florence, Italy to windsurf and stayed. Alessio trained at the prestigious Accedemia of Belle Arti in Florence. Marcello is the engineer and mathematician behind the art.
Alessio and Marcello started using oils on native "Koa" to depict traditional images of Hawaiian life 20 years ago. Today they are considered the benchmark in this art form.
These two Italian artists trained in traditional themes and concepts have incorporated Hawaiiana in their many styles of art.
