Born in Genoa in 1937, Pino Criminelli lives and works near Rome, Italy.  He is probably the most famous Italian boat sketcher.

From a very young age,  his travels (mainly United States, Holland, Principality of Monaco) put him in touch with the emerging international artistic environments, participating in various exhibitions and receiving several international awards. His unmistakable artworks are generally realized by enamels on maoghany board. Sailing boats, motor boats,  large ships, tugs, working boats, all realized by its inimitable mixed technique (brush, spatula, airbrush, silver inlays and so on).

Whatever the boat is represented, the end result is always amazing.
