Born in Brisbane but of Italian descent, Zanesco has been painting for more than 15 years. His first exhibition was held in Ipswich in 2016, attracting the interest of numerous key figures in the local community.

Councillor for Forest Lake ward Charles Strunk will open the exhibition. The opening day for this year’s exhibition will be a morning tea at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, 10 October 2021, at the Inala Community Gallery, located at the Inala Civic Centre. 

“The scale and realism of the artworks are so great that it will feel as though you are being transported to Australia’s remote wilderness,” Cr Strunk said.

“It is clear from this exhibition, that this young artist has devoted much of his life studying the great wild places, and from that, he has created captivating artworks,” he said.

“Not only are there artworks well-suited to a home, but also theatrical canvasses featuring unique textures, shapes, colours and emotions,” he added.
