"Speak No Evil, See No Evil, Hear No evil" pencil on acid free paper, 22" x 30" (detail)

It's a rather simple idea, but to me it was a theme I had to explore. The idea came to me from seeing a toy of monkey's in China Town in San Francisco. Print's will be made available of this one. Promise!! #renecapone #queerartist #californiaboys #fullongay #caponefineart #renécapone #coronavirus2020 #lgbtcharacter #mythology #pencildrawing #unf**kablebottom #nudemale #fineart

"Creatures In The Grove"
www.rene-capone.pixels.com

Infamous "Creatures In The Grove" 22" x28", acrylic, 2002. An image made with pure romantic intention & lot's of hate mail to follow. Featured in XY magazine it sparked the seeds of what would becone part of my career. It also gave way to a curse. One that I've lovingly embrased. Created in Stern Grove Park, it was safe but beyond SF's protective barrier the piece was in constant danger. Cursed by constant theft against the boy who purchaced it. Usually retrieved with police involvement. It was even saved from a fire once. Stolen again in 2015, I had no choice but to repaint it once again in 2017. Stollen again! I've vowed to paint it one more time halloween 2019

"White Lilies" acrylic, 24"x28" 2002 (sold private collection) while living right next to Stern Grove Park in San Francisco two things happened to me at young age. Around 21ish. First I developed allergies & magically at the same time became a full time artist. Lot's of sneezing & lot's of painting. So much artwork was made that I lost track. Fast foward - I woke up @ 40 and I though I'd really like to celebrate artistically what I did with my life because it matters. It say's "Yes You Can" to anyone who ever had what others might consider an impossible idea. Somone's got to do it & it might as well be you!!

We're cracking open the art vault & letting all the little monsters out to play. All the characters, all the wild ideas, all the figure paintings that we're the background to my life's story. We are going to tell those syories because they are now all featured in a custom book titled "A Boy Named Patience." He's 240 pages & features over 365 artworks and paired with the poetry of Mr. Dave Russo.

Youth Hunting Turtles by Rene Capone

Once I had a pet Turtle, named "Turtle." My roommate & I lost our apartment and we both decided he must not get lost or lonely. So we took him to the turtle sanctuary pond in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. He now lives permanently there, where he can now see other turtles face to face daily. It was the most responsible thing to do.

If you visit the pond and yell "Turtle", he'll swim over to you, but he expects sardines to follow.

"Melancholy" Rene Capone Original Watercolour Signed & Framed Male Nude Fine Art | eBay

EBAY: Entering the secondary art market is not something an artist does by themselves is I'm super honored to be considered a great artist. Can I admit that my heart hurts a little because it feels as if my soul has been bought and sold many times over. Sure It's worth a lot of money and damn right it should be !!!

However as a human being, personally, emotionally; once you've been bought & sold in your life time where does one go?
I would prefer it to be so expensive that no one on earth could ever re -buy. The artwork in my life was made as it was the only way I knew how to communicate. It's about as real as real gets.

He took a four-year absence from creating fine art to dig deep within his psyche and painful childhood to create a series of paintings that inspired his graphic novel The Legend of Hedgehog Boy. The novel struck a deep chord within many readers, and it transformed the artist as well. | eBay!

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. Two complications of Capones artwork titled “Any Given Moment” & “A Boy Named” are available on Amazon.com.
