About Art

Working predominately in colored pencils, Art Venti creates amorphic shapes, gracefully caught in a moment of movement. With intense detail, Art’s dream-like penciled landscapes have the translucent quality of watercolors. Art’s surreal and rhythmical work has been shown in numerous juried shows.

Art explains his work by saying, “I have been an artist since childhood.I consider that the best is still ahead of me. It is my identity. I draw, paint and sculpt. For more than a decade now, my subject matter in art has been based on theories of a futuristic world. All my work has originated from or related to, cast off objects and recycled materials. My first major drawing on paper series, begun end of 2008 into 2009, The Peripheral World (or Peripherals), was first inspired by thrown away paper tissues, and creased papers. I have aspirations and plans for larger and more complex pieces.”
