Interview: Aaron Cristofaro
Luca Curci talks with Aaron Cristofaro during THE BODY LANGUAGE 2020 at Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi.
I’m Aaron Cristofaro and I was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, in 1975. I can describe my artwork as including portraits, landscapes, still life’s, botanicals, seascapes cityscapes. I started drawing landscapes and then I moved on into Drawing portraits and painting landscapes and portraits. I guess when I feel success in one area of art I want to try other areas also. I previously won two art competitions from the Drawing Academy and one from The Old Masters Academy. I was recently in a new Old Masters Academy art competition and was awarded a new art course for participating. I enjoy drawing and painting through the day. I am teaching myself how to draw and paint portraits in oil using Classical Drawing and painting methods. I just graduated the old Masters.academy and received my certificate of excellence on October 9, 2019. I am also learning new watercolor painting techniques. I’m currently represented by Agora Gallery.
