    DONATO ARTS Open Studio

    Hello ConceptArt,

    donatoart.com/news.html

    I would like to extend to you this warm invitation to visit my home and studio here in Brooklyn this forth coming weekend, June 4th & 5th, 12-6pm, in concurrence with a local Art Walk in which dozens of studios, galleries and shops will be open for exhibiting art. My studio and home will be laid bare to all, with hundreds of drawings and dozens of paintings on display, most having never been shown publicly. Of special interest is the large scale canvas, Prometheus, which was scheduled for exhibit earlier this year in Chelsea but did not show there, and my next epic medieval battle composition, Agincourt which is still in production. Previews are available on the site in the news section above, as well as links for directions and a map.(Agincourt is below)

    I hope to see you there. Many other artists will be showing up ~ late Saturday afternoon....

    Thank you for your continued support,

    Donato

    No fuckn' way D! - been a fan of yours for some time...I am going to try my best to make it...

    that painting is looking awesome by the way - can I say I kind of like it unfinished? i said it anyway

    ps - Perhaps you should also post this in the 'New York' section in the CA local artist groups in the Lounge

    A big fan

    Donato, I have been following your work for some time.

    It's absolutely splendid, and your site is great.

    Keep up the great work!

    Please pardon my ignorance but OIL ON LININ?

    I'm sure it makes a very nice smooth texture as opposed to canvas but I wonder how it holds up over time. I'd think it would rot within 20 years.

    Peace, Love and Harmony... I could never get them all into bed at the same time!

    linen lasts centuries. It's has been found in stone age remains, and of course egyptian mummies. Linen canvases are quality (but expensive) and more permanent than cotton canvases. No worries about this work disappearing.

    Cow

    Hi,
    Nice to see so much ambition in a painting. It's quite rare to see here a scene with a crowd, but you do it in a beautiful way : Good inspiration for me.
    Interesting to see the process too.
    I hope you'll find time to react to some threads around here, many people could benefit from your experience.
    Bye

    Stupid fanboy lives on the wrong coast

    Hi Donato,

    I *almost* replied to your general emailing yesterday. I'd *love* to be able to go to this. But alas, too short a notice, and 3000 miles stand between me and your beautiful paintings.







    BUT ONE DAY!!! I *will not be denied*!

    maybe you're thinking of linen bedsheets or something... linen canvas is just as durable as anything else

    BALLS TO THE WALL!!! ANOTHER MTG FAVORITE!!!!

    i had to drool for Miracola, so I have to drool for you...
    I've been stunned by your work since i picked up my first deck of Magic (even though i had to squint).

    I'm sorry if you hear this all the time but that's what gave me exposure to your work, i've come in contact with your work all over the place and appreciated it but these usually don't say "artist Donato Giancola" at the bottom, hehe.

    I didn't continue my oil painting work after collage. I just never have a place for a studio and I suppose didn't have the motivation to make one. Since I am a tile setter by profession I was able to use that as an artistic outlet which I excelled in and made a grip of money so I guess I was satisfied enough. But I do wish I'd at least dabbled a bit more than I did. I would have know linen was a higher quality canvas at least!

    Ah but the wonderful world of digital art! A 200 square foot studio with every paint and brush imaginable crammed into the space of a monitor and a Wacom tablet! Gotta love that!

    Peace, Love and Harmony... I could never get them all into bed at the same time!

    Linen is what the 'old masters' painted on. They werent using cotton, mayn!

    Donato, your work is freaking amazing. I've known about your work for years now. I won't be able to make it up there for this, but I am moving to NYC in another 3 or 4 months. Maybe I'll see about stopping by then... you're one of my favorite illustrators and I'd love to meet you and see these paintings!!!


    edit> oh, i just remembered! Hopefully you'll read this Donato... but, I'm saving up money to move to NYC and all that. Right now I'm a cashier at Wal-Mart, worked at K-Mart before this. One day I was thinking about my future and how I can't work crap jobs like this, I hate them so much, and I can't wait to learn what I need to learn to do what I want to do... then someone came through my line and bought a pack of cards (not magic, i don't remember what they were, they were greeting card sized) and while ringing it, put it in the bag, then pulled it right back out. I knew it looked like your work, so I searched it over and found your name on it. I was like DANGIT, *I* want to be doing this, not ringing out work by people who are *actually* doing it! hahaha

    Man I wish I was back home in NY, even though im upstate, to check out your open studio showing. But I am really curious to how to came about creating this painting, what references did you use and all that stuff. If you ever find ourself in Binghamton, check out the first friday gallery showings. The art community is growing.

    Well, I had the pleasure to seeing Donato's work yesterday and I have to say that its so much more breathtaking in person. His work is amazing... Very nice and humbled guy with a great studio, beautiful home and great family. Two thumbs up for Donato being what many of us aspire to in so many ways!
