Santo is a painter’s painter. At 99 he is the respected patriarch of the art community here and beyond. He has been an exhibiting member of the Guild of Creative Art for 50 years where his work will be on display for the month of November. We will celebrate his 100th birthday in June 2022!
Santo’s work is powerful, using brilliant color, strong compositions, and energetic brushwork. He has said, “I paint what moves me. I’m excited to find the simple shapes in a composition and bring them forth in importance. Then all the other elements fall into place. Once I start a painting it flows with a life of its own. I never strive for photographic realism, but instead respect the nature of the medium within the dictates of design, color, and texture”. Santo’s curiosity has led him to explore a great many techniques and styles without sacrificing the quality of the work. Regardless of the different directions, his fresh compositions have stood the test of time.
Born in the foothills of the Italian Alps, Santo came to this country at age 5. His talent won him scholarships to study art in NY. He then had a successful career as VP and Creative Director in Advertising on Madison Avenue, while always working on and exhibiting his own fine art. He has been shown in countless shows, both local and national, and has won many distinguished awards. His work has been published in numerous art magazines.
