Although beginning his artistic journey with the school of Piazza del Popolo, on the line of Roman Pop Art, Raimondo Galeano quickly moves away from it, to follow a very personal use of phosphorescence and light reactive luminescent paints. Galeano has been named the “painter of light” due to his prerogative of overturning the traditional concept of light reflected painting for one of transmitted light, by skillfully using luminescent paints. Starting with the paradox that colors don’t exist since they are revealed by the light reflected on paintings, the artist totally nullifies such value by only working on the distinction between light and shadow for the plastic interpretation of the images. In daylight, Galeano’s works look like white canvas, and it is only in darkness that his phosphorent paints reveal the pictorial campitures defining the images of the paintings. Such ambivalence unveils the fleeting essence of perception and relity.
