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 composition, color and light, D’Antonio’s work is at once modern, yet integrates a free, suggestive, painterly quality. Schooled at the Rhode School of Design, the Art Students League Lehigh University and the Hun School of Princeton, D’Antonio has a rare talent for capturing the essence of his surroundings and offers an innovative commentary about familiar subjects. His paintings actually make us us feel as if we are there; whether at the helm of an offshore racing yacht headed out of a storm on the high seas, standing at the edge of a field with brilliant colored skies just before nightfall; or as an innocent character in threatening surroundings – John makes you part of his world.
