Biagio (Gino) Civale has studied in Italy and the United States. His work has been exhibited in more than two-hundred group shows and fifty one-man shows. Civale currently resides and works in Yonkers, New York. "My style, my work, has been defined by some critics as Modern Primitivism. I do not know whether this is correct but certainly I wish to reach a type of expression that will deliver some truth."
