I have known Lino for nearly 15 years and from the very beginning loved his work! Lino's combination of creativity and professionalism is exactly what I've always appreciated and admired. We were able to match many of his initial work pieces to decorate our Event Center lobby areas as well as throughout the years continued acquiring various pieces for our home. His art is vibrant, colorful, imaginative and particular to our taste.

Based on a sculpture of the female body which is displayed in the garden area of the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco, California, our beautiful Lino original hangs proudly in our family room. Upon the initial view, you may just appreciate It’s gorgeous hues of green geometric shapes. Upon further reflection, the interplay of atypical forms balanced with several carefully placed circles, provides the curves necessary to invoke the feminine form. The slight head tilt of the figure implies to me a youthful demureness. All visitors to our home are immediately drawn in to its presence. We have had it hanging in the same spot for at least 10 years and our enthusiasm for it has never wavered. It is clearly the focal point of the room, and frequently becomes the topic of conversation when people learn we know the artist well and that this was a difficult piece for him to part with. We would highly recommend your acquiring one of his works.

My wife and I have acquired a number of Lino’s pieces and proudly display them throughout our home in Pebble Beach California. In our living room alone have four pieces including above our fireplace. His work is unique and each piece seems to have a different inspiration reflecting his experiences as a well traveled immigrant American.
