The paintings of Angelo Mariano find their inspiration in a symbiotic relationship between empirical world and abstraction.
The artist has been drawing since his childhood and, after receiving a degree with honors in Philosophy at the University of Bologna, he moved to New York in 2000 to pursue a professional career as a visual artist and as a teacher.
"Painting gives me the possibility to suggest without defining; it is a game that involves the author and the viewer with a freedom that goes beyond the rigidity of words".
Angelo has been studying painting and etching from 2001 to 2005 at The Art Students League of New York and in 2003 he won a grant for a Summer painting course at the Marchutz School in Aix en Provence, France. Two of Angelo Mariano's paintings were selected and now exhibited at 100 Wall Street through RobinWilsonHome ARTLOAN Program (now through June 2008).
His works are in private collections in USA, Canada, Europe and Japan.
