The Great-nephew of Paul Gauguin, Loli tries to share his introspective journey using nature as a metaphor
Alberto Loli Narváez, better known as Vito Loli, was born on August 12, 1954 in Lima, Peru. The Great-nephew of Paul Gauguin, he is a self-taught painter expressing his passion for nature and the female figure. He is committed to the fight for sustainability, especially in Peru. Most of his work integrates his passions achieving very personal images that are full of magic with a direct and provocative message. Through his work, Loli shares his introspective journey using nature as a metaphor.
An architect and designer, Loli has devoted himself to his fine art paintings exhibiting at the Paris Grand Palais in 2009 and recognized in 2010 as one of the 170 best painters in the world at the Grand Gala and auction of the Archaeological Institute in New York City. Loli was invited to the United Nations in Geneva for the year of Biological Diversity presenting a collection of his works with the Jananpacha Project highlighting the Peruvian legacy as a Heritage of the Humanity. “I seek to transmit a legacy and a high-impact humanist message."
The Loli brand is inspired by the passions of the artist for the human form, nature, and his love for surfing and water. His paintings have been transformed into over 500+ pattern designs by his wife, Erica Schaeffer for fashion, home, and sustainability licensing. A lifestyle brand that is both vibrant and subtle yet at the same time it reflects the traditions of Peruvian culture in a modern contemporary approach. With its beautiful explosive warm colors of the Peruvian land and its people, the brand can be adapted in all aspects of living. Recognized throughout the world, the expressiveness and subject matter of Loli’s paintings are global reflecting his love for nature and the Peruvian land. As Vice President of the NGO Tierra y Ser, a non-profit organization with a focus to save lives in natural disasters and to create Social Eco-Warriors improving sustainability and the quality of life for families, the Loli brand supports sustainability initiatives in its global worldwide pursuit to save the environment and the precious legacy of the Peruvian microclimates.
Vito has a very simple philosophy of life: he thinks that humility is the greatest of virtues. His main passion in life is painting, followed by the sport of surfing, obviously this unites him with nature, since he only comes out of the workshop to enter the sea. He has the gift of blending in with his clients to the point of capturing things that others do not perceive with the naked eye, so he manages to reach their soul and heart. Vito has clients on 5 continents and many of them have been collecting his art for more than 20 years, making him one of the most prolific and best-selling painters in this country. Organically, he has more than 6 thousand followers and is re-launching its social networks and investing in digital marketing.
