The Artwork Of Rio Vassallo

Mario “Rio” Vassallo was born in Bayonne NJ in1976, the son of Peruvian immigrants. He Later studied illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah Ga, as a result his passion for painting blossomed. After that, many of the following years were spent traveling the country and absorbing life. Eventually ending up in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park where the bulk of his acrylic work was created. Northern California provided a much needed stability. Consequently, this enabled a shift from acrylic to oil paintings. Describable as somewhere between visionary and surreal, the allegorical nature of his work is not just appealing to the eye, but provokes thought, as well as a wide range of emotions.
