"Flower Power" is a vibrant, small-scale painting featuring a Cape farmhouse adorned with spring flowers under a striking blue sky.

Born in Italy and influenced by artistic luminaries such as Matisse, Cezanne, Monet, and Manet, Mauro Chiarla, a Post-Impressionist master, brings South African scenes to life with sweeping brushstrokes and a warm Mediterranean-infused colour palette. 

Mauro embodies authenticity and modesty, despite his exceptional talent. His paintings narrate stories and evoke emotions beyond his conscious awareness during their creation.

His diverse repertoire includes depictions of South African landscapes, seascapes, African township scenes, rural life featuring his iconic Wood Carrier women, vineyards, and the vividly colourful Namaqualand spring flowers.

While Mauro's physical presence may have departed, his aspiration to become a revered South African Art Master persists, solidifying his legacy in the world of collectible art that resonates with timeless emotions and landscapes.

About Artist

Mauro Chiarla was born in Italy in 1949, where he resided until he was eight. Economic hardship following World War 2 made life especially tough for Chiarla's family in Italy, so they immigrated to South Africa in 1957 to start a new life. Chiarla has been in Johannesburg ever since.

Chiarla's deep love of fine art first emerged at primary school, where he discovered a lifelong passion for painting and sketching. Although never formally schooled in art, Chiarla was always a humble yet exceptionally talented artist. Working from his home studio, he began selling his works in the local art in the Park events at Zoo Lake before being discovered more than 25 years ago.

Regarding his artistic influences, it is safe to say that the Impressionists, Post-Impressionists and Expressionists, particularly their use of light and colour, have had the most significant impact on Chiarla. Matisse, Cézanne, Monet and Manet from the European stable and in South Africa, G. Goodman, Hugo Naudé and Titto Fasciciotti were also significant influences.

However, the most significant influences on Chiarla were the scenes he captured and the interaction of people in the scenery – the colours, attitudes and movement.

Chiarla used oil pastels, acrylics, and oil paints as the primary media for his works on paper, board, and canvas. Chiarla sadly passed away in 2022 after a short illness.
