Born in Cape May, New Jersey in 1977, painter Victor Grasso is an architect of new and uncanny worlds. Grasso’s distinctive and rich oil paintings, while realist in technique, transport the viewer to uncharted territories. Painting familiar objects and forms in surprising compositions, Grasso tells a story through his works, often with dark or quirky overtones. “My paintings reflect situations that don’t often exist in everyday life…but I strive to make it as real as possible to bring you into my world.”
Grasso has exhibited in numerous group exhibitions across the United States, and in galleries including but not limited to ARCADIA Contemporary, New York, NY, Last Rites Gallery, New York, NY, and James Oliver Gallery, Philadelphia, PA. He has had many solo shows at galleries such as Soma Gallery, Cape May, NJ, and Galleri Oxholm, Copenhagen, DK, and at the Noyes Museum of Art, Oceanville, NJ.
