L'Arte è allo stesso tempo armonia e contraddizione.
E' qualcosa di nuovo e di antico, rappresenta il presente ma riflette il passato.
E' qualcosa di innato ma sempre vivo.
Art is both harmony and contradiction.
And something new and old, represents the present, but reflects the past.
And something innate, but still alive.
A Neapolitan mechanical engineer and designer, Enzo Naso began to paint in 1977.
His great passion for motor cars very soon involved him in producing posters for the Mille Miglia, Tour Auto and, in 1994, for Ferrari, beginning his collaboration with the Maranello car factory.
Works have been produced under his signature, including water colours, posters and calendars, dedicated to Ferrari Challenge, Historic Challenge, and Formula 1.
In the field of graphics the logo which he created to mark the 50th anniversary of the Maranello factory, is certainly to be remembered from among his collaborations with Ferrari.
Most of his paintings are done in oil on canvas, which is the technique that best allows him to pursue his search for special effects in transparency and delicacy of colours.
In August 2000 he was invited by Michigan University to exhibit at Meadow Brook Hall Art Concours, where he received the Strother McMinn Art Award as the artist who has most successfully represented the automobile as an object of art.
On the occasion of the Athens Olympic games he was invited by Swatch to take part in the Kaleidoscope Exhibition.
Since 2001 he has been the official Ferrari artist to produce paintings, limited editions and lithographs for collectors and as corporate items.
