Fred Calleri

Fred Calleri









Fred Calleri was born (June 1964) in Maryland and moved to Arizona in 2001.
After and extensive period in Graphic Design and Marketing, Calleri decided to move to Flagstaff and take advantage of the history, scenery, people and especially the astounding light offered in the western regions of the U.S.
By studying artists such as Anders Zorn, John Singer Sargent, Vermeer, Sorolla and many others as well as living masters today -Calleri aims to reproduce classic and romantic images using the masterÌs palette and mood to create an emotional reaction.

As he explores different paths, the figure resonates throughout each piece. While experimenting with the figure and representational painting in general, Calleri found by adding a slight distortion he was free to let the image take him where it wanted to go. Caller injects into his images a romantic and mysterious quality. Ï I want the piece to have a rich, romantic, painterly quality that exudes lessons learned from the Masters while maintaining the original feel that my work conveys.

CalleriÌs experience at The Maryland Institute College of Art was a watershed event for him. The excellent training he received opened the window to all fields of art. Ironically, Fred took one painting class in college and only became seriously interested in professionally painting after the birth of his son in 1997.

Today, while Calleri feels especially compelled to paint the most classical of artistic subjects, the human figure, his body of work also includes landscapes and still lifes Ò whatever subjects manage to capture his interest as he continually searches the world around him for reasons to record an image with the brush.
