Acclaimed Dorchester Artist John Provenzano Gets Painting Selected For A Curatorial Spotlight At Danforth Art Museum/School in Framingham MA
Boston’s own John Provenzano (www.johnprovenzano.com). Provenzano’s art integrates a mix of images, symbols, patterns and text into highly energetic and powerful paintings. Provenzano paints richly colored canvases and finds inspiration in music. His paintings are in numerous collections and can be seen in galleries along the East Coast. Provenzano’s work has appeared on Channel 7 and Fox 25 News when Julianna and Manny Ramirez were featured. Interior designers, including noted designer, Dennis Duffy, have either used Provenzano’s paintings or commissioned work for their clients. In 2005, he was included in the “Director’s Pick” exhibition at the Judi Rotenberg Gallery in Boston. Recently, he has exhibited his work at the "Art Hole" in South Boston, MA. Provenzano’s work can also be seen in the movie Mermaids.
Danforth Art Museum/School exhibited Provenzano’s painting titled, “Profiled” in the “Community Of Artists” exhibit that was on view this summer. The painting is from Provenzano’s series, featuring a series of paintings layered with images containing references to the government, war, race, religion and the text and symbols of daily life, such as Twitter and Facebook messages, caution tape, bar codes and even song lyrics.
