About Painter Gary Bagnato
Born Akron, Ohio October 9,1949, same date as John Lennon, Gary Bagnato started painting early in life. In 1974 I decided to become a serious artist and turn professional. I started doing landscape in oil paint. Taking Fine and Professional Art in high school and at Kent State University, I started to develop my own style. Drawing from the Old Masters and New Masters, I produced a new mode of expression that I call "Sensual Painting".
I combine the direct color as the Fauvists, apply paint in the fashion of the Impressionists, outline as the Primitives, and always keep in mind the quality of the Renaissance painters. My sensual style is as its name states, it's bright and flashy, yet sort of subtle, straight edged, yet round and flowing. I believe when people look at my paintings they get a feeling of pleasure and voluptuous sensitivity that the causes the mind to relax into it.
