Marc Dalessio is a Los Angeles-based American naturalistic painter. With the ever amazing paintings of light and shadow version, he could make many viewers of his piece believe that he is the most lovely modern impressionist. Check out for his collections here.
As he mentioned in his artist statement, “My foundation in fine art began at the University of California at Santa Cruz where I originally studied biology. The excellent art instructors Patrick Ahern and Hardy Hanson introduced me to plain air landscape painting and academic drawing, respectively.”
Dalessio then moved to Italy and got his training at Charles H. Cecil Studio in Florence from 1992 until 1996.
