I found my passion for painting and sculpture at a very young age and it continued throughout my teens expressing myself creatively by producing art that identifies with human emotion, fantasy, inner human conflict, technology and past / present current events. The Raw Outsider Art Museum (R.O.A.M) showcases artwork by me.
My art images can be viewed at http://www.myspace.com/puleo40 and at another website of mine http://www.puleo-artbrut.com. My art is for sale, I can be contacted by email address email@example.com or by cell phone # 1-347-837-2551. I am interested in gallery representation in New York City.
After graduating from St. John’s University in 1992 with a B.A. in Business and Marketing I fell in love with the genre of art known as “Outsider Art”…. art created untraditionally. I use different types of raw materials found around, in and about my surroundings.
I choose my subjects by what delights and captures my imagination. I want my paintings and sculpture to tell a story. My process of creating art is my way of inscribing myself into the past that I wish to explore, as well as attempting to elevate my chosen imagery into a realm of the cherished and respected. It has taken years for me to find a form for my art, which is the cornerstone of our existence here on earth and afterward when we depart from this world.
Painting and sculpture fills me with a sense of well-being and humility and has proven to be a satisfying way for me to translate my visual ideas into physical reality. I paint both what I see and what I feel----focusing on the sensation and context of my experience.
I work deliberately; employing both untraditional and innovative techniques while letting the uncertain nature of painting, free my hand. My paintings are finished when they are able to convey a moment or sensation of where I am, as well as what I am seeing.
