Descendant of Italian immigrants, Giacomin creates on paper the result of a reverent and always generous look with their land and to the outside world.
Giacomin also paints daily scenes in which the artist reveals a beauty unnoticed by the casual viewer.
Always in search of light, human figures do not escape from his inspired look reporter image. In 2007, Giacomin released the book in Poetry Watercolor with 204 pages (currently available in the 2nd edition) grouped in thematic blocks.
These scenes come from trips made by Rio Grande do Sul and scenarios with which this region of Brazil maintains a cultural dialogue. Giacomin lives and works in Caxias do Sul, where he has his studio.
