John D’Antonio’s stunningly realistic compositions redefine our environment whether on land or at sea. Recognized as a leading representational artist, John sets a new precedent in the art world. Uniting a remarkable eye for hyper-realism with an unrivaled talent in the use of color and light, D’Antonio’s work is at once modern, yet integrates the free, suggestive quality reminiscent of 19th Century American and French land and seascape painters.
Schooled at the Rhode School of Design, the Art Students League and Lehigh University, D’Antonio has a rare talent for capturing the essence of his surroundings and offers an innovative commentary about familiar, pleasing subjects. His paintings actually lure us into the subject making us feel as if we are there; whether at the helm headed out of a storm on the high seas or standing at the edge of a field with brilliant colored skies just before nightfall—John makes you part of his world.
