Frank Creaturo, Artist, Sarasota, Florida

 

 

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Creaturo has an extensive artistic career.  He was a student at School of Industrial Art and at School of Art and Design in NYC.  Frank has been recognized with countless awards, featured in many newspapers for his works, has had several one man shows and was even spotlighted on Eyewitness News in New York.

Creaturo has been active in many charity events, he's designed program covers for American Diabetes Foundation, Big Brothers & Big Sisters, and Make a Wish.

In late 2005, Creaturo had one-man shows at the Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Sarasota and at the Shands Teaching Hospital at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

He has a unique style, which shows through in both his contemporary painting and realistic people from the late 1930's to the 1950's.

As for his contemporary works, they're full of colors and movements.  He plays with the use of light, shadows and figures and has developed a new and personal style of organization of color.

Award winning international artist Niska, said of his old works, "It really brings us back to a period in time that evokes emotions where everything seemed slower, kinder and authentic.  You feel it through the faces, the clothing, and the details given to the background surroundings.  BRAVO !!!"

Another write up by Art Critic Joan Altabe said of Creaturo's contemporary paintings, "They bear the progressive look of 20th century art.  Though not an action painting or surrealist, his art can make one think of these."

Frank Creaturo was awarded 1st Place out of 1,500 artists at the NY Reform School Artfest in October, 2010.

The Reform School Project is a charity dedicated to reforming schools by raising funds to improve education by providing much need needed supplies.
