“My paintings are my palette for chaos and order to collide; I take the high art and the low art, which is commonplace, and let them battle it out on the canvas.
The contemporary issues confronted in the word provoke a response, both emotional and intellectual, and symbolize the struggle towards birth that our society now faces.
Painting, to me, is the great equalizer. I paint for humanity. I call to arms; the eternal spirit of man, the builder, the organizer and the evolutionary spirit that creates civilizations. I am speaking of that common, human thread that the great thinkers of the past continue to teach us; the common link which triumphs over adversity, poverty and injustice.”
The contemporary issues confronted in DeCunto’s work provoke a response, both emotional and intellectual, and symbolize the struggle towards birth that our society now faces.
Giovanni DeCunto’s work can be found in museums throughout the world such as the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston MA, the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C., the Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University and The City Hall of Padua in Italy to name a few, as well as inside the private homes of high profile celebrities such as Lionel Richie, Shaquille O’Neal, Tom Cruise and George H.W. Bush.
