Collectables

Pino originals are collectable works of art. Many of his pieces are classic, iconic paintings such as Afternoon Stroll, Maternal Instincts, Silent Contemplation, Purity, Solace, Fleeting Moments, Remember When, Dancing in Barcelona, Flamenco in Red and much more. These original pieces which are prized by art collectors and admirers alike are also made into limited edition art prints. In certain situations, Pino has been known to paint variations of a particular composition. Taking Maternal Instincts as an example; in the original version, Pino has painted the mother wearing a lavender frock and the daughter in a teal-colored dress. In a Pino variation to the original Maternal Instincts piece, the alternative version carries a more vibrant theme; it accentuates the mother in a deep purple frock and the daughter in a burgundy dress with a much deeper background.

Latter Pino fine art compositions emphasized his acquired taste for Spanish history and culture. Compositions were characteristically painted with Spanish dancers caught in movement, pastoral mother and child scenes and sensual Spanish women – all against dramatic backgrounds. The subject was extremely popular with art enthusiasts and collectors that often paintings were sold before even being completed.
