Roberto Butta was born on February 16 th 1961 in the town of Bellano, a small village in the Lariano region, situated on the east shore of Lake Como. One of the many enchanting cities on the Lake.
Among some of the other enchanting villages are Bellagio, Varenna, Balbianello and the island of Comacina in Lecco, in which you find the small city of Pescarenico , the very city that inspired the famous romance of Alessandaro Manzoni “The Betrothed” (Promessi Sposi).
These beautiful villages and poetic panoramas are the inspirations of Roberto Butta.
Roberto’s passion was born of one singular experience.
From that moment on, day and night he emerged himself in art.
Self-taught, headstrong sensible and extravagant, with these qualities Roberto has turned his inspiration of nocturnal panoramas into reality.
Light, shadows and magical reflections emerge from his works stupefy and capture you. You will never tire from looking at his works.
His works inspire serenity.
Painting is his life.
To inspire you is his goal.
" One can be good to paint a tree, a mountain, a landscape or anything else: one can reach the perfection, let them seem like if they were true, but this only means that you are good to paint and nothing else.
The painting, my painting is something different, it is a life style, it is a never ending internal research, it is looking inside and let coming out on the canvas the intensity of the emotions and feelings which the others can not see and understand: my painting is the expression of the soul, through a technical move, which is able to follow and see the tones of an enchanted lake or the nuances of a white snow night.
Every day I hardly work to let all this happening with the final goal to fulfil painting which can describe the real satisfaction coming from the awareness to have transmitted emotions."
