Gian Marco Montesano was born in Trento in 1949. He studied at the Salesian seminary of Valdocco.

The initiation of Montesano’s painting started while he was a seminarist in Valdocco. 


At the beginning of the 70’s his masterpieces are reproductions of the Madonna and of all the holy images, that remainded him of his spiritual experience. He painted them, making them bigger and putting them in a postmodern vision, as in the traditional popular painting, but with a connotation of conceptual and theorical meaning. vVrious are the paintings he dedicated to Turin and to the memory of his father who was an eccentric worker in the “avanspettacolo”, a theatrical, comical show that borned between the 30’s and the 50’s. 


From the 80’s to the 90’s Montesano is considered in a revival pictorical current named “Medialism”, of Neopop and comics imprinting, but he was a precursor of this one.
