William Mastrogiulio is a highly acclaimed abstract artist. His paintings stand out for their color, patter n and energy, which manifests as movement that seems to leap from the canvas. As a self-taught artist who left a career in graphic art after being inspired by abstract expressionists, Mastrogiulio is known for his unique style – non-objective and void of any definitive technique.
He draws inspiration from all aspects of life and attributes his flourishing creative process to his love of music, poetry and bonsai cultivation. He relies on a variety of techniques to create his art, utilizing trowels, putty knives, fingers and brushes to move acrylic paint throughout the canvas. He incorporates objects, such as paper towels, wood and bits of canvas, in his works as well. Each piece is unique, requiring different methods and experimentation to convey the meaning of that particular work. The goal of his art is to make things he loves to look at.
Today, he continues to live and work in New York and his art can be viewed in the Agora Valley. For more on William Mastrogiulio, visit www.williammastrogiulio.com.
