Daniel Runfola

Daniel Runfola was born in Jamestown NY in 1950 and currently lives and works in New Jersey. He writes:

In my gallery named "Painting for the 21st Century" are paintings on canvas and mixed media works on paper (inkjets). Many of the images are composed of live broadcast images from the Internet and TV, often recording, in real time, current political, social, cultural events and issues. What emerges is a new style of painting that bridges traditional painting and technology by using the computer as "visual art instrument." The power of technology becomes my brush, pigment and canvas. Through these works I am a part of the American expressionist figurative and abstract expressionist tree, which is rooted in the New York School of painting which continues to push the limits of painting and high art.
