Salvatore Zofrea

Australian artist (b. 1946)  

Artist Salvatore Zofrea is known for his extensive series of woodblock prints. His woodcuts are vigorous and expressive. I’ve been printing Salvatore’s woodblocks for over a decade.

Art steeped a in Calabrian background

Italian born, the artist migrated with his family to Australia at the age of nine. Salvatore soon evolved his own highly expressionistic style of art. His imagery is steeped in his Calabrian background.

Salvatore’s Capricornia Suit" documents the labours of Italian migrants in the Queensland canefields. His monumental series of woodcuts Appassionata, tells the story of his life. Works from both series are available here.
