Statement



Vincent Pinto began painting in New York City in 1975 after studying in Philadelphia. Urban
subjects motivate most of his work. "The city is my home," he says. "I love the whole urban mix. The range of visual stimulation is enormous. The emotional range is likewise. What I want my art to do is intensify my experiences of the city, and then intensify the viewer’s recognition of this experience."

The art critic John Perrault was an early admirer of his paintings, some of which can be found in the collections of First Boston Corporation, Lloyd's Bank International and Bank of New York, as well as private collections in New York and elsewhere. In the early 80s Pinto was a director of The Artists Project, a public art effort funded by New York City that included artists Herman Cherry, Joe Delaney, Cynthia Mailman and Myron Heise. Pinto's work has been in numerous New York galleries over the years, including Barbara Gladstone, Forum, and Bernaducci, as well as Paul McCarron Fine Prints and Drawings, on Madison Avenue.
He attended Pratt Institute and the Philadelphia College of Art, where Biagio Pinto (no relation) was his first art teacher. Pinto belongs to
The Federation of Modern Painters and Sculptors and New York Artists Equity
