Joseph Malfettone (b. 1987)
Joseph holds a BFA from the College of Fine Arts in Boston University, studied at La Scuola Internazionale Di Grafica in Venice, Italy and has been privately trained in Venetian Renaissance Portraiture since the age of 16.
His works use common language, diametric motifs, scientific references and a robust classical approach as a way to reveal commentaries on the physics and growth of consciousness, beauty and awareness. He is currently producing a large body of work blending classical technique and state-of-the-art technologies through painting and sculpture.
This series of work, The Transfiguration, features opposing elements throughout history, geography, cosmology and human physiology; culminating in a sensual clarity distant from time and space.
