John Roscigno is a self taught intuitive artist specializing in combining elements of color, texture and movement within his pieces as a form of visual self expression. The works are primarily improvisational at the core. They are not abstract in the true sense of the word; they don’t aim to represent concrete subject matter in an abstract way. The work is simply meant to be an inner manifestation of one person’s attempt to express emotion through paint. John has enjoyed a successful career as a classical musician which has had a strong impact on the way in which he presents color, texture and movement on canvas. Over the past two years he has completed over 400 acrylic and mixed media works. He holds advanced degrees in music performance and conducting and a minor in art history. He comes from a family of artists and is originally from the Bronx, New York.
