John Falato

Realist painter John Falato is known for the stunning detail of his vividly-rendered landscape paintings depicting such timeless subjects as country farms, rowboats along the shoreline and autumn trees ablaze in color. From preliminary graphite drawings and photographic reference shots, he formulates a truly remarkable composition and focal point for each work. This slow process yields masterful works in oil, most of which are on panel. His brush strokes are extremely thin to convey the detail needed in his unique technique. The super-realism of his work portray images in a way that even today's high-resolution digital photographs fail to capture, further demonstrating this artist's mastery. This painstaking process results in few paintings each year, but those produced are each incredible that they leave a lasting impression with the viewer.

A Connecticut resident, John Falato has coupled his career as a painter with that of a Fine Arts professor, having taught at the following institutions: Silvermine College of Art, Greens Farms Academy, and Paier College of Art. He received his own instruction in Fine Arts from Paier College of Art and the University of Hartford (B.F.A.). Falato's painting Weir Farm (Award of Merit Winner, National Academy of the Arts) was featured in the 2000 publication Arts for the Parks (North Light Books). His work has also appeared in Yankee Magazine (1986).

John Falato has been recognized for his work with serveral awards including: the Mervin Honig Memorial Award from Allied Artists of America (1990); the National Academy of the Arts Award for Excellence in the Art for the Parks Competition of 1991; and the A.E. Labutis Klue Award from the American Artists Professional League (1997).
