Craig Cerborino — Artist’s Biography

Born: Hoboken, NJ | 1955
Studio: Quakertown, PA

Born in Hoboken, N.J., in 1955, Craig Cerborino is a self-taught painter and designer who has worked and shown at many galleries and public spaces in and around New York City. Mr. Cerborino was especially active during the 1980s and ’90s. In 1988 he began designing wrought iron furniture and exhibited his work at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair. This led to many other design projects for many different clients, including night clubs, hotels, and restaurants.

Around this same time, Craig and other artists worked on the underwater sculptures project that built a famous artificial reef near the island of Cozumel, just off the east (or Caribbean) coast of Mexico.

In 2010, Mr. Cerborino returned to his true passion of painting. “Nothing is more challenging than working on a flat surface!” Craig has said. In his new artwork, he experiments with three-dimensional illusions created by various ingenious techniques.

Artist’s Statement:

The original idea of my artwork lies in three-dimensional technique. By using bold colors and depth perception in a way that creates the illusion of some movement, when the painting pulls you in or pushes you out! When the subject is captured at the moment of complete focus!

An innovative artist is always driven to create on the cusp of change!
