On a regular basis, we invite artists from all over the world to come and join us in Tuscany. The gallery is transformed into an atelier and the artists have the exclusive opportunity to let their creative juices flow in the most picturesque of environments. The Tuscan landscape, the medieval town, the finest Italian wines, cheeses and delicacies, as well as the calm atmosphere, often lead to some really special creations by the artists who join us. With its emphasis on experimentation and interpretation, and its focus on exploring art in its historical, cultural, and social contexts, the Banditto Galleria serves as a sanctuary for the exploration of art’s environments.
Exceptional, unique artworks are often produced by the artists during this incredible experience at the Galleria, as its art work that they created in a specific moment of time. These special pieces will then often be available for sale to the public after the artist has departed.
The featured artists below are high profile and internationally recognized, and they are in no way available for direct queries by any entrant/invitee. Should they be contacted on an individual or personal basis, it will be viewed as an attempt to gain an unfair advantage in the competition, and Banditto Art remains the right to discard the entrant’s submission without refund, and ban the artist from any future entries.
