Self Portrait 2017

 

M.J. DeAngelo is a self-taught fine artist and illustrator, producing works in several mediums.  At an early age his father gave him a wide exposure to art; frequent trips to galleries and museums still influence his work today.  A large portion of his life is dedicated to studying and experiencing and ultimately conveying life across the United States. He disciplines himself daily to work in the studio and frequently on large scale, sometimes collaborative  projects; supplemented by a deep interest in the history of art. 

DeAngelo's work has been in juried shows such as The New Haven Paint & Clay Club and Pequot Gallery; he was integral as both an artist and facilitator to New Haven's Under 91 Project, the first mural allowed on CTDoT property in Connecticut.  He continues to do commissioned work, participate in gallery shows and work on large scale projects.
