About Newton Florentino

I was born in Brazil started work as a painter in 1973. You can call me a multi-dimensional creative artist. I work with oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, charcoal, and sculptures. In 1979 I arrived in America and was enrolled in commercial illustration and graphic arts, working for many years doing illustrations for advertising; in 2001, I decided to dedicate 100% of my creativity to fine arts. Since then, I'm showing my paintings and sculptures in many galleries and art shows in many different countries. Painting, sculpture, and music are my life. I like to make art captivate the minds and intrigue one's own imagination. I am a classic realist painter who works with both oil and acrylic. Over the years, I have explored the beauty of the human figure, the mystery behind still life, and the bringing of still life to reality. I attempt to make my paintings communicate through their expression since they are alive and filled with emotion. I think the reason for this is because I put my soul into the paintings. I have always treated my paintings as though they are part of me. Previously, I worked as an Illustrator for various advertising agencies across New York and eventually discovered my true passion for painting. My strong subject is figurative and still life. I love to paint people in different situations. I want people to feel captivated by my paintings. Over the years, I have become attached to my paintings, and I am now excited to present my creativity and artistic style to the world. I hope you enjoy it!
