This catalog for art instructor and former Disney animator Danny Galieote's very first, solo exhibition of paintings. Reproduces 12 oil paintings.
The exhibition was held at Arcadia Contemporary gallery in New York from May to June 2014.
From the catalog:
Danny Galieote was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and has been drawing and painting since his earliest memories. He has been an instructor of figure drawing and painting at Art Center College of Design, the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art and at the Walt Disney Animation Studios.
At Disney Studios, Galieote worked for several years as one of their top, traditional character animators. The years at Disney not only allowed him to hone his skills in drawing and painting, but made him an expert in timing and movement whichhe feels are critical parts in the success of his artwork.
And while Galieotes paintings are stylistically inspired by The American Scenepainters, The Regionalists and WPA Artists of the 1930s and 1940s, it is his sense of irony and humor that is most assuredly 21st Century.
This show of new works marks Galieote's very first, solo exhibition of paintings.
