The painter Colini was born in 1924, in Kolín, Czechoslovakia.
Colini became fascinated with Italian art of the Renaissance Era, and decided to paint only in Egg Tempera. He began to find ways to improve the Surrealists weaknesses by overlaying a Renaissance flavor.
When the Communists took over Central Europe after WWII, Colini lived in Switzerland and then France from which he was forced to leave for Venezuela. He became a citizen of Venezuela and then immigrated to Canada, where he had his first exhibition in Toronto. He later moved to the United States, living in the New York area for many years, returning to Europe each year to study art, and exhibit in Switzerland and Germany.
During this lifelong journey, Colini has been exposed to many cultures and languages, which is why his paintings contain such rich and varied symbolism.
Colini now calls Northeastern Pennsylvania his home, and continues to paint and exhibit his fascinating works.
