Biography from Robin Rile Fine Art:
Born in a small northern Italian town called Rovigo on May 4, 1953, he later moved with his family to Turin, Italy.  The only things he likes to remember about Rovigo  are the branches of the weeping willow in the small garden, two tin soldiers and a picture of a whale, drawn at nursery school when he was 4, under the gaze of a nun who was unaware that her admiring glance was to decide his life as a painter.

Walter Girotto uses oil and oil pastel crayon on wood panels to achieve a unique, textured effect. Figurative works and landscapes are his specialty.

In 1985, Girotto took part in his first Art-Expo in New York, and, following this auspicious debut in which he sold everything within the first twenty minutes of the opening of the exhibition, he spent the rest of the show apologizing for having no other works available.

Girotto took part with equal fortune in the next two New York Art-Expos until, in 1987, the meeting with dealer Robert Bane led to the show at the Tamara Bane Gallery in Los Angeles in 1988 and to which, considering its success, the ones in 1989 and 1990 were the natural sequel. He faced than public opinion in a multitude of one-man exhibitions, enjoying widespread, sincere approval which often made him, as he says " … proud and confident I had given, at least to kindred spirits, the pleasure of seeing what my soul rejoiced at imagining transformed into shapes and colours."
