Salvo Pastorello is an Italian artist with over 30 years work. He was featured at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011 and Art Miami in 2000. Having participated in over 60 exhibitions around the world, his art reflects his global experience and commentary brought on by the collective philosophies of his origin as well as oriental ones.

The authentication certificate is a way for the original creator of the artwork to verify whether the purchased work is really the work of the artist.

The certificate can be used for various purposes such as provenance, proof of authenticity, and used when reselling or donating the work to other parties.

For example, if the artwork is put up for auction, the auction house can verify the authenticity of a work and its value by checking with the relevant authentication boards of an artist.

Yes, it is possible to get a new certificate but this will require the artwork to be re-authenticated by the artist. An authentication fee will be charged to you.
