Extended Biography: I got into painting after a number of years of drawing and/or inking for comic books. This was about 10-12 years ago. All of the comic books were independent and I don't think that any of them ever saw the light of day. After a while I had decided that comic book illustration wasn't working out for me and I had decided to go back into painting (which I hadn't done since college about 5 years earlier). I had studied a number of different artists' styles and ultimately started dabbling in cubism and futurism. I found that I wanted to paint like Umberto Boccioni sculpted. I particularly enjoyed the sculture 'Unique Forms of Continutiy in Space'. I've done a painting of it called 'Ode to Boccioni'. Over time I have fused these ideas as well as several other styles into my own style of painting which is not really cubism, and not exactly futurism, but these descriptions will do for the time being. Last year I had started a painting blog after completing 'Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days', a project for a local art gallery. Since then I have joined the Daily Painters International Art Gallery, the Daily Painters Marketplace, the Daily Painters Abstract Near the end of last year I was accepted into the best known of the daily painters galleries Shows & Exhibitions 2010 MARCO FUOCO GALLERY April 2008 - Present 6764 Folsom Blvd. Sacramento, Ca. 95819 MARCO FUOCO GALLERY climate/gallery April 2010 37-24 24th Street, Ste. 406 Long Island City, NY 11101 NEVER THINK small - Redux climate/gallery 2009 Artworks in Progress Studio January Locke, CA Self Portrait Show -Juried Exhibition- X-Power Gallery April Beverly Hills, CA 90210 **EMERGING ARTIST SPECIAL AWARD FOR 'MICHAEL' X-Power Gallery -Juried Exhibition- Art Prize September - October 80 Ottawa NW Suite 101 Grand Rapids, MI 49503 Art Prize -Annual Small Works Invitational Exhibition- Arts West Gallery December Elon, NC, 27244 2008 Sofia Restaurant and Bar May - August 815 11th St. Sacramento, CA 95814 (916) 558-1580 -Juried Exhibition- New Artworks Gallery August **HONORABLE MENTION for 'The Guitar Player'** 10239 Fair Oaks Blvd., Fair Oaks.
