About the artist
Felice Mazzoni

Felice Mazzoni is best known for his modern monochromatic landscape depictions and minimalist twisted windblown trees. Mazzoni’s relationship with the west coast landscape stems from his experiences and memories having been born in Tofino and raised in Ucluelet on Vancouver Island, Canada, where the rugged beauty of the West Coast and the Pacific Rim National Park became an indelible part of his upbringing. Growing up with the ocean as his neighbor and the pristine wilderness as his backyard, Mazzoni shares his experiences and memories through his painting. Mazzoni discovered his hidden talent during Covid and began painting on his dining room table late at night during the lockdowns. Mazzoni is self-taught and utilizes the traditional approach of free-hand oil painting without any sketching or tracing, and he is one of only a few artists that currently paints monochromatic realism landscapes and seascapes. With oil as his medium, Mazzoni builds the surfaces of his canvases with many layers of thinned paint and is particularly known for his fine detailing and use of light in his pieces. Mazzoni will often use luminosity to highlight individual landscapes and to emphasize the individual features be it the ocean, trees, sand and weather. Light is the essential element that threads his works together and, as he notes, “I want the subjects of my oil paintings to exhibit emotion, for the audience to experience the gnarly bent trees… to smell the ocean and feel the wind”. Mazzoni’s use of light and shadow was recently honored by the Maryland Federation of Art by awarding him with the “Juror's Choice” Award in the 6th Annual Light and Shadow International Art Competition, and the "Best in Show" Award at the Camelback Gallery Black and White International Juried Award Exhibition. Although Mazzoni now lives in Victoria, British Columbia, he often visits the coast and beaches where he grew up to get new inspiration for his work and now shares his art with the world, selling his pieces both regionally and internationally to collectors.
