Angels are the most loyal and dependable beings of divine light. Over the centuries, angels have been depicted as messengers and protectors that provide hope. This is an important series of paintings that is dedicated to those angels in our lives who provide us with hope time after time, during any given crisis. Whether this person is a significant other, relative, friend, publicist, teacher, these angels of hope come in many forms and from a multitude of diverse individuals. In this series of paintings, I pay tribute to everyone who has contributed to my life in a positive manner, those who continually succeed in helping
Marco Cutrone studied at the New York, School of Visual Arts. While attending school, he was chosen from the student body to apprentice for Dutch painter and fine artist, Braldt Bralds. He later worked closely with his cousin, artist/actor Federico Castelluccio in order to refine his craft. Academically, Cutrone has earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Thomas Edison University and then attended New Jersey City University to complete his Masters degree.
Cutrone is internationally renowned with paintings and drawings in private collections all over the globe including Oxfordshire, England and The Leo Tolstoy Estate Museum in Kiev. His works were represented by London Based Bloxham Galleries in the UK until deciding to return them in order to pursue representation by a New York City based gallery. In May of 2012, Marco Cutrone was commissioned by the Daily Show to present a drawing of Sasha and Malia to The First Lady for placement in the White House in Washington D.C.
Recently, Marco Cutrone was asked to be the host of many art instructional shorts and “quick tip” guides featured by the (then owned) New York Times, About.com. Marco Cutrone is also the art historian hosting the master artists’ biographies such as; Rembrandt, Carravaggio, Van Gogh, de Goya and Jackson Pollock on About.com.
Marco Cutrone is a professor of Drawing and Art History at The County College of Morris and teaches color Illustration 1 and 2 at a private art school, as well as Methods and Materials. Cutrone also teaches private lessons on oil painting and drawing from life.
As an artist Cutrone continues to push the boundaries as his largest undertaking was made with 20,000 upholstery buttons, all of which, were constructed from the artist’s hand. Nicola Formichetti, who recently worked closely with Lady Ga-Ga, as her fashion director, chose the piece (out of thousands of entries) as one of the fifteen winners of the Diesel Reboot art competition to promote their successful advertisement campaign. On Monday, August 12, 2013 The 10’ portrait was projected onto the side of the Bank of America building in San Francisco’s Union Square.
