Growing up on the shores of Erie, Pennsylvania Jason made his career as a Packaging Engineer for Amatech/Polycel. He eventually came to run the prototyping department where all fresh, new designs emerge. He now works as a consultant working directly with customers out in the field designing packaging.
Amatangelo’s work is both innovative yet regimented, which is only half of his personality. He spent most of his life on the water sailing, swimming and lifeguarding. His free-flowing, mild-mannered attitude has led him to his adventurous, abstractual style of art.
While studying graphic design, Jason learned to fine-tune his realism drawings. Typical works consisted of portraits, comics and cartooning. Although these remain his roots, a new style of art emerged shortly after Jason’s move to Columbus, Ohio in 2002.
Jason is a creator and inventor. After some friends and family suggested a more suitable style of art for him, Amatangelo allowed himself to focus on his true personality through a more abstractual approach to his art. Focusing on his childhood passion for graffiti and cartooning he implements this style into his fine art abstracts today.
Jason and his wife, Linda married in May 2004 spending their honeymoon in Italy. Following their heritage and love of Renaissance Art, Jason seized his opportunity and began to create from within. With years of playing with form and color his love for abstract only grew stronger. Plotting to combine his engineering background with his new love for abstract, Amatangelo took hold of his razor blade and started cutting each whimsical shape, applying foam for depth while using his airbrush and technique for flow and movement of each piece. Shortly after bringing his work to another “level,” he was fascinated by the number of possibilities there are when creating three-dimensional abstract illusions.
Amatangelo continues to reside in beautiful Columbus, Ohio with his wife and new son, Austin. His works are shown across the United States along with Gallery representation. Jason’s art is made for the viewer who is willing to take that risk. A viewer who is willing to unhinge their thoughts to a more open, free-spirited style of art that keeps you guessing and intrigued. Enjoy and indulge yourself in this journey of futurism.
