LIVES AND WORKS IN / Athens, OH
ABOUT / I have been creating art since the very beginning, it being my center and passion always. I studied fine art at School of Visual Arts in New York City where I was exposed to new and exciting ideas which helped form my future artwork. After college I got a job reproducing modern paintings as well as making original artworks for a gallery on Madison Avenue in New York City. While there I did paintings on a very large scale for CBS television sets as well as for display in high-end department stores. My paintings have been included in several gallery shows over the years. I have represented myself since 2003 with Bangbouh Modern, an online shop/gallery I started with my wife. Through Bangbouh Modern, I have built a large body of work, much of which hangs in private collections all over the world. Most recently, one of my paintings has been chosen to appear as part of the set design of season six of the television show Mad Men. I live with my wife Magedalena and daughter Mirielle in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains in southeastern Ohio.
