What the heart wants and the heart needs can be found in a Fabio Napoleoni painting. Nostalgia, sorrow and moments that lift the soul are all there for the world to see and experience along with him. The vivid colors and captivating characters invite you into an emotional ride that is welcomed by the mind and the heart. Simple landscapes set the stage to the value of emotional attachment that can be compared to no other. Influences from some of this century's greatest artists are hard to find in his pieces, but are drenched deep in the fabric of what puts a Napoleoni painting together.

Fabio Napoleoni coming to Art Center on February 8, 2019

Fabio Napoleoni coming to Art Center on February 8, 2019

Art Center Gallery welcomes Fabio Napoleoni for an exclusive art show February 8, 2019. Please join us 5-9pm to meet Fabio in person and have your new 2019 artwork hand signed and dedicated. This special appearance is something you don’t want to miss. Mark your calendar for this special reception. Unique new and original works of art will be on display now through February so be sure to come by and see what’s in store in time for Valentine’s Day!

Most of Fabio’s works of art contain one or more hearts in his paintings and sketches. Many events influenced Fabio's artwork but none more than the traumatic events that followed the birth of his second child. His daughter, born with major heart abnormalities, had to face several surgeries to correct issues that could prevent her from having a future. Overwhelmed with his daughters issues and surrounded by an emotional sea of sorrow from other parents in the same situation, Fabio grew. While his wife and daughter slept, Fabio wandered the halls of the children’s care unit looking for a spot where he could sketch out his personal thoughts. From these thoughts a new form of creativity was born. The doors to Fabio Napoleoni's heart were opened for the world to experience.

Chet Zar and Gabe Leonard visit Art Center Gallery

Chet Zar and Gabe Leonard visit Art Center Gallery

Chet Zar and Gabe Leonard visit Art Center Gallery together! 

On Saturday December 15, 2018 Art Center Gallery had the privilege of hosting both Chet Zar and Gabe Leonard together at a unique Art Show.  

Chet is known for his dark art and stranger things including monsters, special effects, digital animation, and dark imagery. His work includes unique paintings, sculptures and more. The original characters Chet creates seem like creatures from another dimension. Much of his creative work evokes feelings of fear, loneliness, insecurity, and vulnerability. 

Gabe Leonard, the Cinematic Artist from Los Angeles, is known for creating rich modes of expressive art. He is a seasoned figurative painter creating images full of narrative possibilities. His trademark paint runs and drips in his work allow artistic expression and break free from the traditional norm. You can find heroes in his collection such as Rembrandt, Alphonse, Mucha, Gustav Kilmt and Egon Schiele.

Gabe Leonard

Gabe Leonard

Gabe Leonard "It is shady here" Legacy Edition 20 x 40” Edition of 50 Unframed

We can ship anywhere!

 Gabe Leonard's paintings take you into a world rich with inimitable atmosphere and narrative intrigue. What tales lie behind these interesting characters? And where will their stories take them?

Leonard spent his early years in the mountain state of Wyoming, sketching wildlife and selling them to his school friends for a dollar. After graduating from Columbus College, Ohio with a BA in Fine Art, he moved to Los Angeles where he first honed his skills on the ultra-competitive boardwalk of Venice Beach.

 His work captures rich moods by combining the free brushwork of an expressive artist combined with the lighting and framing of a seasoned Hollywood cinematographer. Drawn to rugged and romantic film noir characters, Leonard merges technically brilliant figurative painting with a finely crafted cinematic atmosphere, creating snapshot moments full of narrative possibilities.

The trademark runs and drips in his work are a deliberate break from academic restrictions and allow him to be more expressive, free and loose. Leonard's style is deeply rooted in the European artistic tradition, drawing particularly on the work of his heroes such as Rembrandt, Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele.

 Following a string of sell-out shows and acquisitions of his work by high profile collectors including Quentin Tarantino, Ruben Fleischer and Charlie Sheen, Leonard has become one of the most sought-after artists in the world, collected in the United States, Europe, Asia, and Australia.

Fabio Napoleoni  NEW RELEASE “Sunday Afternoons" Paper size 15.5 x 17, Ap: 52,  Sn: 156 

Sunday afternoons was inspired during a drive Fabio and his wife took on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) while visiting a few beaches along the way. While painting this piece he began thinking back to his early teen years, “I remember that the neighbors across the street nearly every Sunday during the summer and fall would go for a drive. What made it memorable for me were the automobiles, their garage housed a 59 Blue Cadillac convertible with the large trunk wings and a white 57 Chevy Bel Air. They both would snuggle up close and drive away in the Cadillac only to return and repeat the drive again but this time around with the Chevy.” www.artcentergallery.com

Fabio Show Event Update at Art center Gallery

Fabio Show Event Update at Art center Gallery

 

 

                                    It is really inspiring when an artist comes to the gallery and works non stop signing for over 7.5 hours. Meeting and greeting people , and signing and embellishes his pieces. Fabio was engaging his Fans , signing all night long. And that is so awesome. Fabio appreciates his fans immensely and loves the interaction and it does get him pumped up. Fabio likes to stay in shape and a signing is the reason he keeps fit , because the non stop signing is very strenuous. I will share something very special he said . After all the People had left , Fabio was still signing pieces art center gallery had sold from all around the world at 1:00 am .  Fabio said  " You know I never sign the same way twice , I always do something different for each piece , and that is tough to come up with hundreds of different ideas as I sign. But when people  take the time to meet me , I want to give something extra special to them from my self personally from my heart. And the way I do this is to stay fresh with new ideas for each piece I sign. In a unique way for people."

 

 

 

                                  Fabio also mentioned something else and that is he really enjoys meeting people , and finding out what works for them and why his pieces resonate with them. His wife was with him on this signing as well as long time friend ( Daniel). Daniel helps Fabio with other aspects to his business. As well as moral support and also to help take pictures of the collectors ,who want pictures with Fabio. All in all the main aspect was this show was just a fun and inspiring event for both the artist the fans and the collectors. Fabio is young and his Art has inspiring messages , and it makes you smile. And if a piece of Art can make you smile and feel good that is an awesome accomplishment. We here at Art Center Gallery are so proud to be associated with such a fine Artist and Friend. Fabio will be launching his art in different areas of the world and will become more and more popular we feel. So if you do not have a piece yet, buy one now . It will make you smile, lighten your heart, and  just may go up in value !

 

                                     Fabio limits his pieces to very small addition runs and is also very prolific. This low addition runs really gives the collector and fan the opportunity not only to enjoy the Art. But also have some monetary exclusive and upside possibilities. The reason you own something is because you like it and if the value escalates it is just a bonus round. Fabio has a bright career filled with a wonderful world of Characters he has created to bring a smile to you and love to your heart. We had a young man who had bought a piece of Art to cheer her up while undergoing Chemotherapy. When he bought the piece . He new he needed to have a piece to help him through the medical process he faces right now to cheer himself up. This is the why art is priceless.

 

                                   Buy what you like and moves you now. We have the largest collection of Fabio Napoleoni Art on display of any Gallery. Please feel free to join us on Facebook we will keep you posted on future shows of Fabios, new releases and Special art events.

About Michael Godard the Artist.

About Michael Godard the Artist.

Michael Godard was born in Southern California. Growing up, he developed many talents. He was outstanding in math, music, and art. This was extraordinary because his family moved a lot. He attended sixteen different schools. He was also known to have a very good sense of humor. Godard took up fine arts at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas, and then attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. He dedicated himself to pursuing a career as a painter later in life. He also became a mechanical engineer, commercial illustrator, caricature artist, and entrepreneur. www.shopartcenter.com

Career

Godard’s success as an artist did not come easy. He had to invent his own style. During the period his daughter Paige was in a coma, he spent a lot of time in the hospital. He was feeling down and wanted to do something to cheer himself up. Thus, he was inspired to create a series of paintings in which his subjects were olives. Godard brought the olives to life in his paintings and placed them in humorous and interesting scenarios. He painted them using bright colors over a black background. Some of the paintings that play on this theme are Three Amigos, Olive Party, and Seven Deadly Zins. These three paintings caught the attention of the public and were the reason he began to become famous. Because of Godard’s success, he has been featured in “Inked,” “A&E’s Criss Angel’s Mind Freak,” “HBO’s Cat House,” “American Casino,” and many other television shows. He is regarded as the “rock star of the art world” and is currently the best selling artist of the United States. His works can be seen in galleries, hotels, television shows, movies, magazines, stores, restaurants, and the Internet. His paintings are also displayed in the officers’ lounge of the Pentagon. Godard’s art offers a lighter take on life. It presents enjoyment and how to have a good time through his presentations of martinis, animated olives, drunken grapes, dancing strawberries, and gambling. His paintings, such as Bat Outta Hell, are very dramatic and have a comically sinister element. He presents vices and makes them look like virtues, and because of that, rock stars and celebrities love his work.

5 Star Yelp Review
11/5/2015
On YELP at http://www.yelp.com/biz/art-center-gallery-westminster

I cannot even begin to describe my experience here! I called not knowing what SN,AP,PP, framed, stretched, paper, canvas, metal or ANYTHING WAS. I saw a painting that I connected with. I searched the artists name. This gallery popped up as a location to have this artists pieces! I was excited to call but I did not know what to say. I remember a guy answering the phone and my first words were, "I have no clue about paintings, I'm by far not Artsy and you are talking to a virgin!" I knew he was focused on this call. I had to express that I am not politically correct and he assured me it was okay. I asked him to explain what art is from A-Z. His name is Dave. He did not know what he was in for. I called non stop and then I finally bought one, my first, my ticket into an art owner! THEN he tells me that this particular artist was coming to their gallery in a couple months. I lost it! He told me the details on Fabio Napoleoni. I was hooked. Then I encountered this other guy, full of spunk and he was the man behind the curtain. I called and had Todd on the phone and I then ended up with another piece.  These two are very welcoming and very helpful! It's sad to say that they know everything about my finances. They know me so well and know I go in spurts (like a relationship) but when I'm not in contact Dave will reach out to say hello and touch base.  Highly recommend this gallery and highly recommend Fabio Napoleoni Art! I am Michelle Arzaga and I endorse this message!
