About this Artist
"I look closely at the natural world around me and paint the beauty I see."
Billy Solitario explores a wide variety of subject matter, but his favorite subjects are cloudscapes and stil lifes. His confident brush strokes combine with a strong sense of design and craftsmanship to give his oil paintings power and beauty. Solitario works from his Magazine Sreet Studio in New Orleans, finding inspiration in the city?s proximity to nature and the Gulf.
Billy Solitario creates one-of-a-kind original oil paintings on stretched canvas using only the highest quality materials and methods.
In 1994, Billy graduated from the University of South Florida with a B.F.A. in painting. After graduation, he attended the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts. In 1997, he received the Gwendolyn Ozol?s Scholarship Award and began painting full-time. In 2003, Billy received an M.F.A. in painting from Tulane University. Today, Solitario trains by painting the figure.
