His work expresses that of the rural and urban life of real people in their real scenery.
Whether it be a fancy get-up or humble street scene, Giachetti is there, lens hot and camera ready.
Celio H. Barreto, Independent Curator & Art Entrepreneur had this to say about Mr. Giachetti’s work:
“The explosive collage approach of this artist brings a heightened sense of dynamism and chaos to his compositions. It is a real treat to see how iconic images are treated through the extensive use of overlaid transparent image layers and how the various elements within them interact and mix with each other. The sharp color contrasts and seemingly random patterns that form around the main subject energize the final image with a sense of movement and fluidity. Every inch of the picture plane is rich in detail and vibrant colors. Really beautiful work.”
