Zenith Portraits

Celebrating colour at its best – its zenith – hairdresser Gianluca Grechi gives us Zenith portraits.

Van Gogh as inspiration

In this collection, Gianluca describes his use of colours as bright, shiny with dreamy sparkles. Nature and architecture co-exist. This emulates what he sees as Van Gogh’s ability to touch the sun, to portray its fire and its heat, the light it gives off. The artist could turn this into colour that nobody before, or since, could paint as well. 

Van Gogh has changed my way of thinking, imagine things and even work throughout his evolution, his path. To break free from rules, stereotypes. To get out of the box, to not have limits in habits and preconceptions. To be free of dreaming my own paintings and to paint my own dreams.”  Gianluca Grechi
