FORWARD BY GUERRINO BOATTO
If there is an artist in the airbrush world for whom the proverb "nemo propheta in patria" (nobody's a prophet in his own country) fits perfectly, that is my dear friend and colleague Marco Paoletti. In fact, while being well known all over Europe and in the United States, his followers in Italy consist of a relatively small group of airbrush enthusiasts. That is most likely due, on one hand, to his long and intense cooperation with "Art Scene International" ( former Airbrush Art + Action, the most widespread and prestigious airbrush magazine) which is not published in Italian and therefore not very well known in this country. On the other hand, he has seldom been published here in Italy, while exhibiting his work much more abroad than in his home land. For this reason, I readily welcome this personal site of his, which will surely serve to promote Marco's artwork also here in Italy and help in recognizing his place amongst the top Masters of contemporary airbrush painting, which he totally deserves.
