“My earliest memories are of tirelessly drawing figures from How-To art books”
Gesture drives Umberto’s search for an expression of the figure beyond the classical.
Movement and flow, loose and expressive with surface texture being an integral part of the final work.
Representation, for the beauty of it.
Umberto is the recipient of a Trudy and Henry Gillette Sculpture Scholarship, a Nessa Cohen Grant for Sculpture and a chashama Studio Residency. His work was selected for W Magazine's first ever Art Contest.
Umberto lives and works in New York City
