This is Giovanni Cerri’s second exhibition in Toronto at De Luca Fine Art | Gallery . In 2010 he had his first personal exhibition entitled "Hurricane of Light", presenting a cycle of works on the theme of the city, the main subject of his work. This exhibition, entitled "LPortraits", is a series of portraits of the most famous faces of pop rock from the United States and Canada. Cerri, remaining faithful to his pictorial language, has interpreted famous "icons": from Bob Dylan to Patti Smith, from Neil Young to Leonard Cohen, from The Ramones to Aerosmith. A gallery of faces where the artist tries to also communicate the expressive "atmosphere" of these musicians, and trying to translate the spirit of their music in to images.
The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue in the same format of the LPs with texts by Alberto Figliolia and Bruno Milone.
  This exhibition runs from February 11th - March 11th, 2012 at
