John Forgione was born in Brooklyn, NY. He moved to Connecticut at an early age, and continues to call this area his home. John’s artistic passion and influence started as a young boy when he was introduced to painting and sculpture by his uncle, mentor, and namesake John Forgione senior.
John went on to major in art and painting at the University of Connecticut, and graduated with a BFA. His lifelong love of nature, and a strong influence of the French and American Impressionists drive his passion for “Plein Air” Painting. He enjoys the emotional and physical challenges of painting outdoors, working quickly and fervently to capture the effects of light, weather, form, architecture and nature in his work.
His paintings have been displayed and sold through a variety of Connecticut art shows and galleries including the Fine Line Art Gallery, NEST Arts Factory, New Pond Farm, Rene Soto Gallery, Mark Twain Library, Metro Art Studios, and out of his home studio and gallery in Easton. John is also a successful entrepreneur, and is a founding partner at SFA Marketing, a Connecticut based marketing agency.
