Professional artist Vincent Giarrano explores city life in oil paints!
Connecticut artist Vincent Giarrano is a Contemporary Realist painter. His work is focused on creating impressions that are about real life experience. "I like my paintings to resonate as sincere moments of life," says Giarrano. Quality of light is another major aspect in Vincent's paintings. He favors cool, even light, and how it enhances the mood of his subjects, especially in his paintings of city life. Giarrano's New York City Series deals with the dynamic between people and their environment, as well as the interplay of classic and contemporary elements in this setting.
Giarrano earned a BFA from The State University of New York at Buffalo, and a Master of Fine Art from Syracuse University. His work has been show in galleries across the country, including the prestigious National Portrait Gallery at the Smithsonian in Washington DC. Giarrano's work has been featured on the cover of The Artist's Magazine (Oct 2011) and Southwest Art magazine (Jan 2012) and he appears regularly in American Art Collector and other art publications.
