Primarily an abstract artist, Santo Bruno (b. 1947 in Reading, PA) aims to “strike a balance between order and intuition while focusing on emotional, spiritual and intellectual ideas.” Bruno earned his B.F.A. (1969) at from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA, and subsequently his M.F.A. (1971) at Temple University Rome in Italy. After graduating in 1971, Bruno worked at the Atlanta College of Art first as an art instructor and later as the head of the painting department. During his 12 years in Atlanta, Bruno became the founding president in 1776 of The Atlanta Art Workers Coalition, which later formed The Art Papers. After Atlanta, Bruno founded Santo Bruno Fine Arts (1990, New York, NY), a private business buying, selling and restoring art. Since 2000, Bruno has worked and lived in Connecticut.
Bruno’s work has been showcased in numerous exhibitions, and can be found in multiple collections, including the Stampe Nacionale d’Italia (Italy), University of Osaka (Osaka, Japan), The High Museum of Art ( Atlanta, GA), Kilpatrick, Cody and Regenstein Collection (Atlanta, GA), and (Carter and Associates (Atlanta, GA).
