Patrizio Gervasoni was born in 1950 in Florence, where he  lives and works.  He predominantly paints by using egg tempera and watercolor techniques, interpreting figurative, often marine, subjects.

Gervasoni is a painter-navigator: half of the year he sails solitary in the Mediterranean sea with his sailboat. In the other half (in winter) he paints in his Calenzano, a wonderful "borgo" - a small village -near Florence.

He participated in various art exhibitions, always receiving large appreciations.
