John Di Crescenzo | Exhibit at 645 Glenferrie Road, Hawthorn
Updated: Aug 9
Born in Guardiagrele, a village in the Abruzzi region of Italy in 1944, John Di Crescenzo's love of art developed from an early age. The close association with his country helped develop a strong affinity for the local landscape. John studied art at the Chieti Art Institute.
He has concentrated his artistic talent exclusively in watercolour paintings and John's subject matter is today dominated by the influence of European subject matter, most notably Tuscan and Venetian landscapes. John migrated to Australia in 1969 and lives in Melbourne. Over the years, John has been the recipient of numerous awards and conducts watercolour classes.
John's artwork has featured in the Camberwell Art Show for the past 30+ years. The Camberwell Art Show is hosted by the Camberwell Rotary Club and originally held at the Hawthorn Town Hall (now the Hawthorn Arts Centre) and now held at Swinburne University in Glenferrie Hawthorn.
