Lino Tesco’s main passion is painting. Since 1996 focuses in mixed-media arts with a wide range of topics like portraits, landscapes and seascapes. His distinctive style is based on a simplistic line with bold features. There is a reference to the ancient Greek ‘’meandros’’, a bold outline that progresses in a 'random' expansion. This line advances naturally, creating shapes, areas and volumes.
