Although James Fiorentino started painting sports celebrities to obtain their autographs, autographs are now requested of him nationwide. Prestigious companies, galleries, museums, politicians, athletes, and entertainment personalities have commissioned James. James has worked with Yogi Berra, Cal Ripken Jr., Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams, Greg LeMond, and many contemporary athletes. His artistic ability has evolved into more than just a childhood hobby.
James has painted and illustrated hundreds of intricately developed works in watercolor and oils since he was a young child. Like many artists, Fiorentino enjoyed painting at an early age; however, his talents displayed a unique maturity for someone so young. While others his age were coloring rough images, his mother Jackie noticed that he could draw fully developed anatomy at the age of three. He was recognized as a prodigy and has been prolific ever since. Included in his diverse collection are photo-realistic portraits ranging from sports figures and celebrities to everyday life, most recently adding neo-expressionism to his portfolio.
James is considered one of the most unique artists of the twentieth century. His skill embodies a compelling sense of realism....
