Fabio Napoleoni

The splendid colors and engaging characters invite you into and emotional ride of feelings that is welcomed by your mind and your heart. Simple pieces set the stage to the value of emotional feelings that can not be compared to another. Influences from some of the greatest artists are difficult to find in his pieces, but are enriched deeply into the core of what puts a Napoleoni painting together.

It started in Ponce, Puerto Rico 1972...Every child spends time playing outside, but this was not an possible for Fabio. From birth the Fabio suffered from asthma so terrible that several times a week he needed allergy shots to prevent severe asthma from consuming him. Many days and weeks spent on the family sofa surrounded by art supplies given to him by his mother. An artist herself, she realized that creating art came much easier to her son than it did to her. So, during the times that asthma attacked him, she felt and urge to supply his creative side with all the tools needed to flourish and grow as an artist.

A lot of  events shaped Fabio's artwork but none more than the inspiring events that followed the birth of his child. His daughter, born with heart abnormalities, she faced several surgeries to repair issues that could have prevent her from a future. Frustrated with his daughters issues and surrounded by feelings of a  sea of sorrow from other parents in the same situation, Fabio grew. When his wife and daughter slept, Fabio walked the Hospital corridors of the children's care unit looking for where he could sketch out his personal feelings and inspiration. From these thoughts a new forms of creativity was born within the artists works. The doors to Fabio Napoleoni's heart opened to express in art works for the world to experience.

It took a dramatic experience for Fabio to realize what he was lacking in his work, and it was emotion and feeling. He had all the elements to create great art but none that inspired the soul. With his new realization and older sketches in hand Fabio added the last ingredient of inspiration and feelings needed...Emotional Experience born of Life's twists and turns.

With a vibrant and bold use of colors along with many of his characters, Fabio has had  created  emotional value to his art that had been there previously. His paintings would have many titles, and every one would fit the image created; but one thing is for certain, you will always find a beautiful heart and emotions in every piece of his work. A symbol of his love for his daughter...she lives now and will forever in his art now as well... Come and experience the heart and soul of Fabio Napoleoni !
