My Imprints Into Eternity by Gino Vaglivielo
I was born in Bridgeport, Connecticut 1979 but have spent most of my life in Florida. My next door neighbor growing up was an artist originally from England. He started teaching me how to paint beaches and birds at the age of five. From there I started to doodle with pencils and black markers.. By my early twenties I was creating abstract art with art markers, giving away my creations to people at the local café almost every week. From there I went back to using paint and have never topped ever since.
I think growing up as a child, having a very vivid imagination lead me to bring my personal world into the reality of others. You really have to stare at my art work to see the hidden images and meaning's within them. The reality is always different for each individual. Anyone can paint a building, a river or a country side.
Why do you create art?
Because it gives me a way to release my emotional and physical thoughts to the world, in a form more people can understand. Then if I just spoke the words, which at times can cause confusion for most.
Curse of The Unchanged Mind by Gino Vaglivielo
How often do you create art?
Almost daily since I work on more then one project at a time these days. If I do not create, I have to much bottled up thoughts and energy. They have to go some where why not on a canvas for the world to see.
Nature and all its untamed beauty. Also the human body, no matter what is happening in my life the human form always inspires me to create!

What plans do you have for the future of your art?
