FEDELE SPADAFORA is a citizen of the world, currently based in New York City yet always on the move. Having earned a BFA from Michigan State University in his native Lansing, Spadafora headed to Prague, which was just shaking off 45 years of communist groupthink.He spent six exciting years there, painting and co-founding an alternative press, then five years studying with Nelson Shanks at the Art Students League of New York and Studio Incamminati in Philadelphia.
Though he shifts easily from portraiture to still life, Spadafora is now most interested in combining figures with New York cityscapes to create seemingly timeless “human landscapes.” His objective for these is to “evoke a sublime beauty and express the human condition as it plays out in the melancholy diners and hole-in-the-wall restaurants that are quickly being replaced by Starbucks, T-Mobile, and Chase. There I look for places and people that intrigue, amaze, and perhaps even frighten me.”
