Abstract artist, Richard Giglio boasts of a wide-ranging body of work including painting, collage, and masks. Informed by a prestigious background in both commercial and fine art, Giglio’s style is graphic and nonrepresentational. Working between his Key West and Manhattan studios, Giglio sites profound inspiration not only from his diverse environments but also from jazz great Billie Holiday, opera star Maria Callas, and modernist artist Henri Matisse. While Giglio’s black and white compositions are strong and calligraphic, his colourful compositions are vibrant, gritty, and spontaneous.
