Umberto Kamperveen’s earliest memories are of tirelessly copying figures from “How-To” art books. 

Now, he explores  themes triggered by literature, music or visual experiences, in sculpture and watercolor paintings.  

Umberto is the recipient of a Trudy and Henry Gillette Scholarship, a Nessa Cohen Grant 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.
