Painting is a Way to Appreciate What We Take for Granted

If you care to look at Vincent Giarrano’s work, you will see a woman in her bed sleeping with a warm-looking blanket. He wanted to show some creases that the blanket makes. It seems he doesn’t want to miss out on little things like the messy blanket or books neatly placed on book shelf or even some scattered on the floor. He can even show what is there in dark hall

If you care to look at Vincent Giarrano’s work, you will see a woman in her bed sleeping with a warm-looking blanket. He wanted to show some creases that the blanket makes. It seems he doesn’t want to miss out on little things like the messy blanket or books neatly placed on book shelf or even some scattered on the floor. He can even show what is there in dark hall.

Vincent Giarrano aka Vince Giarrano was born in Buffalo, New york in 1960. He got his bachelor degree of Fine Arts at the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1982 and he continued his education in Syracuse University to get his Master degree in Fine Arts in 1985.

Actually Giarrano started his career as a comic book artist who has penciled and inked for two decades. His career has also included work for large publishers like DC Comics, Marvel Comics and smaller publishers as well such as Dark Horse Comics and Impact Comics.

His work mostly about a woman in her bedroom but there are many other depicting a woman in various activities like sitting on a couch with her laptop, squatting in front of the door busy playing with her cellphone.

But he can also show a busy street in New York during the rain where people are seemingly in hurry to work. The amazing thing about his work is that he can make his paintings look as if they are real.

As he says in his artist statement about his realist paintings center on New York City, “I see painting as a way to appreciate what is all around us, stuff we take for granted or don’t notice.”
