Born in Milan, Italy, in 1941,
Vittorio Canta grew up surrounded by the rich cultural history of his
homeland. At an early age, he demonstrated his innate talent for visual
arts that was to shape his future career in the field of graphic
design. Following his studies, Vittorio went on to become a highly
sought-after graphic designer in Italy's dynamic advertising industry.
Seeking new adventures and greater challenges, he moved to Montreal
where he began a long and successful career creating, designing and
producing visual communications material. In 2001, Vittorio
settled down in a picturesque town of Quebec's Eastern
Townships. Defined as 'Divisionism/Cubism',
his art is a synthesis of coloured segments that generate mnemonic
connections in each keen observer. While Vittorio’s paintings are
calculated compositions that reach deep in the subconscious of the
viewer, they leave plenty of latitude to interpretation.
