Joseph Malfettone was born in Bridgeport and lives in Fairfield. He holds a BFA from the College of Fine Arts, Boston University, studied at La Scuola Internazionale Di Grafica in Venice, Italy, and has been privately trained in Venetian Renaissance Portraiture since the age of 16. His work deploys techniques of perception and psychology as a means to elevate an awareness of what lies beneath. His media include oil paintings, sculptures, prints and installations. He is currently launching a large series, Beyond The Veil, blending classical technique and state-of-the-art technologies through large-format paintings. It features opposing elements throughout history, geography, cosmology and human physiology. Designed to open the senses to qualities beyond everyday life, the series blends references across art history with current technologies, such as NASA multi-wavelength imagery. The series will also give the opportunity to view behind-the-scenes of the entire creative process and the ability to visit live. Aligned with this work is a message about the possibilities of being, perception and beauty - which has been developed in his podcast, 'Beyond the Veil'. Joseph is exclusively represented by Isabella Garrucho Fine Art, Greenwich. For updates on his upcoming project and message follow his podcast, facebook and Instagram pages.
