Sharon Volpe

Sharon Volpe is a NYC-Based Painter, Illustrator, Designer and Teacher of Studio Art.  She comes from the surrounding NYC area, and completed an M.F.A. in illustration at The Fashion Institute of Technology in 2016 where she studied under well-known painters and illustrators such as Brendan Leach, Aya Kakeda, Martha Rich and Martin Wittfooth. Prior to that she studied graphic design at The School of Visual Arts. Her work has been exhibited in many shows from NYC, Los Angeles, Miami, and in 2018 Paris.

Her work was selected as a Runner Up in Creative Quarterly Issue No. 52, and will be showcased on the Creative Quarterly website alongside other artists in the field of design, illustration, photography and more in the Fall 2018.

She is a member of The CON ARTIST COLLECTIVE on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and also a listed artist on the well-known directory @thewomenwhodraw.

Her practice ranges from small  expressionistic mixed-media portrait paintings to large scale Acrylic and Ink Paintings combining many elements such as foam printing and textures to create a whimsical yet cohesive body of work mostly paying homage to the human experience.  

Artists that influence the work are the Masters such Marc Chagall, Henri Matisse, Egon Schiele, Andy Warhol and current artists working today like James Jean and Jean Jullien.
