René Capone; cusred with the last name of a gangster. He is the creator of characters dripping with metaphor & myhic images
LGBT figure Artist René Capone emerges from a four year bone reconstruction schedule to try and hold on tight to his twenty year painting career full of creating figures with global recognition within the his community. His work is well know for combining mythology, themes from The Hero’s Journey and the beauty of distant eroticism. Capone also loves a good metaphor. René insists his characters exist beyond the image to represent aspects of real life and personality. HIs work has the honor of being held in high regard to a generation of youth who came of agar when equality was something yet to be seen on the horizon.
His training comes from Parsons School of Design in NYC after being awarded a scholarship to leave his small town in upstate NY. Continued Education came from The California Art Institute in San Francisco . Working for Fisher Weisman Design & Decoration was a huge influence on his life. Andrew Fisher & Jeffrey Weisman changed how I saw the world. Capone spent many years working as a gallery assistant in many of the Fine Art Galleries in downtown San Francisco. When ever asked if he had amy mentors he always says, Miss. Karen Imperial of The Bryant Street Gallery in Palo Alto. Mr. Stephen Honicki a photographer and his high school art teacher
In his own career that started while he was very young, selling drawings for up to 900 dollars at 22 years of age. He has always decided to represent and has so for the past twenty years. After doing presenting and attempting to communicate the intention of his work he for so long he believes no one else can really do that more properly than himself. Perhaps in the future or it simply is that an artist has to find his own way.
Capone’s work has been featured widely all over the world wide web and in countless magazine articles. Most notably was his articles in XY Magazine and being featured in “Strppied; The Illustrated Male” published by Bruno Gmunder in 209. Most recently The Advocate Magazine interviewed Rene in an article written by Adam Sandel in 2016.
