Art Venti was born in 1949 in New York City, USA. He has been an enthusiastic artist from a young age. It was then he decided to pursue this as a career, Venti went on to study at the School of Visual Arts, NYC.
“For more than a decade now, my subject matter in art has been based on theories of a futuristic world. All my work has originated from or related to, cast off objects and recycled materials. My first major drawing on paper series, begun end of 2008 into 2009, The Peripheral World (or Peripherals), was first inspired by thrown away paper tissues, and creased papers. I have aspirations and plans for larger and more complex pieces.” Venti’s work does not conveniently fit into a category. There are elements of abstraction and glimpses of ‘reality’. One might guys at surrealism, but Venti does not classify his work as such. His objective is about taking a fresh look at the traditional landscape. “By using this familiar format, a dialogue is created between the viewer and the image. The brain always attempts to organize the lines, shapes and colors it perceives; with no easy reference point, there may be no connection. A recognizable arrangement even though out of the ordinary begins the communication.”
