Roberto Ghisellini Zenesi

Roberto Ghisellini Zenesi has been a practicing artist for over 40 years.  Ghisellini Zenesi was drawn to The Sunderland Book Project through his research into the port of Sunderland, ‘Il Porto’.  Three aspects intrigued him, the port as a base for a trip, the port as a set of lights and colours and the port as a yard or ‘Arsenale’. HUGS and KISSES to CARD refers to the correspondence carried by ships to other parts of the world through their maritime routes. 

Ship yards

Shipyards is a tribute to the shipyard workers and the struggle for work.  The book has been made using oil paint and ‘pop up’ techniques.
