Angelo Quabba

Angelo Quabba was born in Bione, a village at the foot hills of the Alps in the Northen Italy, in 1952. He arrived in Australia in 1982 and settled in North East Victoria.
His paintings express a zest for life and encompass a rich diversity of subject, from huge landscapes and dramatic still life to intimate scenes, portraits and figurative studies.
Angelo’s oil paintings have a distinctive flair, “Joie de Vivre”, because every piece seems full of vitality and spontaneity.

Even today, with collections in both Europe and Australia and a winner of more than 80 awards in the past 25 years, Angelo still sees a need for further development in his subject choices and the way to interpret the subjects.

Mario Mirabile - Photography Judge

Head shot

Born and raised in the Swiss Alps I started photographing the mountains that I so enjoyed climbing. After migrating to Australia, I joined the Caulfield Photographic Society in 1987 where I continued my interest in many types of photography, but mainly landscape, both in Australia’s remote areas and overseas.

I have assisted CPS with its annual Introduction to Photography course for over 25 years, convened judging panels and have been involved as a Committee Member of the Club.
My judging experience started with being on CPS judging panels in the early 1990’s. This led to me judging VAPS, Nationals, and visiting and judging many Clubs throughout Victoria.

I was awarded Life Membership of the Caulfield Photographic Society, in 2010 the VAPS ‘Service to Photography’ Medal and in 2017 I was awarded the 30 year medal
I have been an Australian Photographic Judges Association member since its inception. I was the Vice-President until 2020, and hold a Licentiate accreditation in APJA
