    About The Artist

     

    VINCENT N. FIGLIOLA, award-winning art director and advertising creative director, moved to New Mexico to express his purely creative leanings in a new landscape. Although he won the highest awards for advertising nationally and internationally over the past 25 years in New York City, while directing campaigns for corporations such as Chanel, Revlon, Smirnoff, and Club Med, the Guerlain fragrances - the artist found it impossible to continue because his love of money was less than his love of expression. In his own words, he came to New Mexico..."to see if he could become a serious painter, to paint the human epic in classical terms." The artist's preferred mediums include oil, mixed media, graphite drawings, and limited edition stone lithography.

    In the 1980’s prior to his interview with the BBC, Leo Castelli, the international art critic and founder of movements for modern art, predicted that Vincent would be one of the important realistic painters of this century. Now 78, it appears that he has.

    While in the Fine Arts program at Temple University, Vincent was awarded the Salvador Dali Drawing Competition and offered an apprenticeship in Spain. Born in Harrison, New York in 1936, Vincent N. Figliola currently resides in a desert/mountain landscape in Las Cruces, New Mexico. His work is included in selected corporate and private collections, nationally and internationally. His work is often compared in the human epic to Andrew Wyeth.
