Robert Padovano

Born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, award-winning artist Robert Padovano is best known for his vibrant Impressionistic cityscapes of New York and its’ surrounding environment. His vibrant use of color and expressive brush strokes make his paintings come alive with atmosphere and light. His painting technique incorporates both Impressionist and Pointillist effects, often juxtaposing dabs of pure thick color side by side. When viewed at a distance, the eye mixes these colors to give a luminescent quality to light and shadows.

Having grown up in Brooklyn, the New York urban landscape provides constant inspiration for him. Says Rob, “The effect of changing light upon city streets and buildings is very compelling. This is especially true in “bad” weather, when the snow and rain transform them into something beautiful and mysterious. The light shimmering off a wet pavement or a snowstorm blanketing the city in pristine silence never fails to capture my imagination.”

Robert’s paintings are part of many private and international collections. He has exhibited at The Staten Island Museum, The John A. Noble Maritime Museum, The Newhouse Gallery of Contemporary Art, The E. Mayan Studio in New York City, Union Gallery in Lambertville, New Jersey, The National Lighthouse Museum, St.John's University and many others. His work has been included in juried shows at The Salmagundi Club in New York and the American Artists Professional League, and also featured on cable television artists spotlights. He has also done public murals fot PS 41 in New Dorp, and for the SI Arts Culture Lounge at the SI Ferry Terminal, and chosen to be part of the Sing-for-Hope Pop-up Piano project five consecutive years.

He is also an award-winning graphic artist, and has received numerous national and international design awards from Print Magazine, Graphis, Creativity Annual, and American Corporate Identity, among many others.
