Viani’s art is a loud scream of freedom and liberating gestures. “Art is the tool that frees me from political ideologies.” It unleashes in him profound sentiments of freedom and happiness. His work is deeply emotional, with every brushstroke expressing a love-anger dichotomy. These two binary opposites are revealed and beautifully reconciled by his striking choice of colour: black and white. His thick outrenoir brushstrokes characterise his paintings. His gestural works echo Abstract Expressionism. His strong application of pigment in non-representational forms have been influenced by his upbringing and difficult childhood, marred by censorship and restriction of intellectual and expressive emancipation. Viani’s artistic statement is thus an uncompromising expression of the freedom he was denied during his formative years. His work has been exhibited internationally, and is in private collections around the world.
