BEAUTY: art, antiques, and rugs

Contemporary realist painter Frank DePietro, was born and raised in Scranton PA. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Bloomsburg University in 1997, majoring in both Painting and Ceramics, while minoring in Art History. In 1998 he moved to Philadelphia and earned a degree in Art Education from Moore College of Art and Design. There he continued to study painting at Tyler School of Art and Studio Incamminati. Frank lived in Philadelphia painting, and teaching art part time at several schools, museums, and art centers in the region. In 2010 he moved with his family to Chester County, PA, where he resides today. Following his 2010 move to Chester County, Frank became influenced by the Realist tradition of the Brandywine Valley painters. Frank has since adopted much of this influence into his work while combining it with the Modernist principles he has practiced over the course of his career.
Frank currently teaches painting classes and workshops at the Delaware Art Museum and Longwood Gardens. He exhibits his paintings both locally and throughout the country. Frank has been the recipient of several awards and publications and is a professional member of the International Guild of Realism.

Frank DePietro’s Artist Statement

My paintings are inspired by close observations of the natural world. They display a quiet meditative quality, contemplating our connection with nature as organic beings and part of the cycle that renews all organic life. I attempt to capture ephemeral moments on canvas in a crisp and technically sharp manner with a mindfulness of modern compositional concepts inherent to the medium of painting. They are reflections of the relationship and changing notions of what nature is and meanings our relationships to it have given us.
