"John Benicewicz - In the Studio" Read here.



John Benicewicz was born in 1975 in Waterbury, Connecticut. His interest in art began at an early age but with the exception of a year of training at Parsons School of Design and a second year at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, he is largely self-taught.

Mimsie Coleman, former director of the Arts Council of Greater New Haven's Sumner McKnight Crosby Jr. Gallery and an early champion of his work enthused, "He can draw with ease in a classical Renaissance style, or paint masterfully in a Realist or Surrealistic manner. His style is unique and his talent enormous."

Coleman’s arts venue hosted the launch of Benicewicz’s third highly successful exhibition, The New Circus in the 1990s.

His work is now held in the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art in New York City and in many private collections.

An exhibition of his most recent oil paintings will be on view at the Fred Giampietro Gallery in New Haven from September 10 through October 15, 2016.
