Capturing the metropolitan pulse: Valerio D'Ospina exhibits at Mike Wright Gallery
Manhattan From Above.
DENVER, CO.- Throughout Europe and from American coast to coast Valerio D'Ospina's oil paintings have been recognized for actualizing what many have attempted and few have achieved, expertly capturing the metropolitan pulse.

Valerio D'Ospina began his intensive artistic studies upon moving from Taranto, Italy to Florence where he attended the prestigious Accademia di Belle Arti. During his stay in Florence, he assiduously visited museums to learn the technique of the great masters and was given permission to replicate original works of art in the Palazzo Pitti Museum. After a brief immersion in the Parisian art scene, D'Ospina took a position in antique- painting restoration gaining insight into the “character” of antique paintings. D'Ospina's dedication to technique, numerous academic achievements and natural talent led him to a professorship at the young age of 27.

The competency of technique and appreciation of classic approaches D'Ospina acquired through this intensive study is evident, though illustrated in his work with an original contemporary aesthetic. The artist is able to impart a truly extraordinary life and energy into his masterfully executed cityscapes and images of industry. His paintings capture such scenes as a misty New York morning glimpsed from high above, the blurred streets of Milan as seen from a speeding taxi and the aging remnants of formerly thriving industries. Consistent throughout are the distinctive streaks, scratches, splatters and washes that combine to reveal rich, though largely monochromatic, oil paintings with a dramatic movement and a life of their own.

These dynamic architectural renderings have been widely lauded by lovers of all things urban. In addition to his early European successes, Valerio D'Ospina is now enjoying recognition in the United States' art markets, having relocated to Pennsylvania. He has had numerous solo shows throughout the US and is being featured at Mike Wright Gallery in Denver, Colorado from June 13th through the end of July.
