Vignoli started his career in 1982 creating canvases in oil on canvas, where he applies his own technique, which, according to him, allows a perfect balance in the distribution of the elements, leading the viewer to come across texture, plasticity and creation, in perfect Harmony within the history of each painting.

The style of Vignoli was a fusion between Surrealism and Expressionism, hence the declared influence by the Spanish master Salvador Dalí.

Since 2013, Vignoli had already exhibited his works of art in more than 20 countries.

She develops in his painting a very personal interpretation of human dramas, dealing with stylistic references of Romanticism, Expressionism and metaphysical painting, movements that, like Surrealism, dedicated themselves to interrogating inexpressible human dimensions.

During his work, it is possible to see paintings by Picasso, Munch, Miró, Magritte and Dalí adorning abandoned walls and chairs.

The poetic content of the scenes is pronounced following the mysterious language of the dream, providing metaphors and multiple interpretations.
