Antonio Veronese, Italian-Brazilian painter, has been based in France since 2004. With 74 individual exhibitions around the world, Veronese is considered by French critics as "one of the ten living painters who have already left their tracks on the history of Art". Thanks to his painting that in the 80′s and 90′s denounced the violence against child prisoners in Brazil, he received from the Brazilian Supreme Court of Justice the mention "honoris causa", under indication of Latin American Institute of United Nations (ILANUD).
He is the author of "Save the Children", symbol of the 50th anniversary of the United Nations, and "Just Kids" symbol of UNICEF. As well of "La Marche", exhibited in the Parliament of Brazil since 1995, and "Famine", exhibited since 1994 at the Food Agriculture Organization for United Nations (FAO) in Rome.
Since 1990 Veronese has exhibited successively in several countries, including Brazil, United States, Switzerland, Portugal, Germany, Chile, France, Japan and Dubai. In 1995, he was chosen to represent Brazil at the commemorations of the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. In 1998 he was invited to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights in Geneva and in the same year he represented Brazil at the Meeting of Wives of chiefs of State in Santiago, Chile, where he was received by the wife of US President Hillary Clinton.
