Antonio Puleo, one of the hot stars of contemporary art lives in Los Angeles. Antonio grew up in Watertown and received his BFA from Mass College of Art, Boston. He moved to California where he did his MFA at UCLA in painting and drawing. I've always loved Antonio's work and it would be great to see more of him in Boston. If any of you are going to the Los Angeles area you should definitely stop in to see a group show that features Antonio. The show, curated by Brad Eberhard, is called Time Machine and is up from May 16th - June 16th at High Energy Constructs. The painting above is from his recent solo show with Cherry and Martin gallery, Los Angeles ( Press articles on Antonio include ArtLtd., ArtReview, Nylon, the New Yorker, LA Weekly and Las Vegas Weekly.
