Bruno Piane

Brixton based Artist Bruno Piane was born in the mountains of Southern Italy. He grew up surrounded by trees and the cleanest air in Europe. This exhibit is his ode to the great mother. Mother Earth. Bruno has always been fascinated by the parallels between women and trees – the givers of life. Every item sold in this exhibit will fund the planting of a tree. Bruno is thrilled to have this opportunity to give life through his art and with the help of 55 East CIC.

Independent Speciality Coffee Shop.
