Born in 1946, the superlatively talented artist Frank Arcuri studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City as well as at the Arts Student League of New York. Frank Arcuri is a modern master of classically inspired still imagery who considers the creation of his canvases as much a continual process of “seeing” as it is a process of painting.
He is globally known for his classically inspired, beautifully rendered still life paintings. Frank is a master at bringing to life the beauty of a rose, the glow of an apple, the profundity of the everyday beauty that surrounds us.
At the heart of Arcuri’s work is the interpretation of light, whether it is a product of color, value, form or texture. Frank Arcuri’s paintings at once bring to mind the academic excellence of the Dutch masters of the 17th Century, while still clearly possessing an immediacy and freshness that speaks of today.
Mr. Arcuri has exhibited widely most notably at Eleanor Ettinger Gallery in New York City, at the Travis Gallery, Bucks County and Catto Gallery, London England. His awards include those from Bianco Gallery, the Phillip’s Mill Art Exhibition and the Salmagundi Club.
