A native Californian of Sicilian descent, John Asaro grew up near the picturesque beaches of southern California. His romantic paintings capture playful figures in this setting.
He strives to make his style, content and subjects as personal and candid as possible, so that a capacious audience will understand the relevance of it. "When art is understood by many," Asaro asserts, "it helps to connect us and we are all the better for it. Art is self realization."
The distinguished paintings of John Asaro capture immediate fleeting impressions rather than permanent aspects of a subject. Asaro's virile strokes of paint dash, swish, swirl and leash out to represent light, atmosphere, motion of direct and reflected colors in open air and the complexity of the human condition.
