As an artist, I express myself through my paintings. In order to tell my story, I chose books as a vehicle for those paintings. Creating this type of art is a painstaking process of research, intricate composition, and detailed painting. After coming up with a thematic concept, I choose the image for each of the books. A color background is then created which is complimentary to the image. Finally, I make up a title that in combination with the image will elicit a response from the viewer. So far, I have created over 60 paintings making up over 400 books.
My artwork is in galleries throughout the country and purchased by art collectors around the world. These paintings can touch people in a very deep and meaningful way and it is gratifying to receive compliments on the detail and realism.
Some celebrities have collected my art like; Heisman Trophy winner and two times Super Bowl champion Jim Plunkett, entertainer and rapper Lil’ Wayne, and media mogul Oprah Winfrey, to name just a few.

Juan’s artistic career started in the early 2000’s when he began doodling in the small A4 format using China ink and engineering precision pens. These pieces matured into an entire series that culminated with the creation of a genderless character known as Dr. Wiggl’s PhD.
In 2006 Juan was selected as Artist of the month of the Orlando Museum of Art and he had a solo exhibit at the museum art shop. From 2005 to 2008 Juan exhibited on a permanent basis at the OSGS Gallery in West Palm Beach. For over two decades Juan has focused on this theme of China ink on paper until 2021 when he decided to explore color and large formats.
Today Juan combines his themes of small and large formats and uses inspiration based on his love of words, mathematics, aviation and business.

"I was and still am a city kid. Growing up in Milwaukee was not much different than New York or other big cities. We did many of the same things. Hanging out with friends, our lives revolved around playing cards, usually poker, shooting pool, smoking too much and drinking too much. Like a young person growing up anywhere there was never enough time for chasing girls. Somehow I managed to study enough to eventually become an Endocrinologist.
I studied Art History in college. These classes opened up a whole new world to me. I later fell in love with photography. I am basically a street photographer. What interests me most is what I call "The Theatre of the Street", that look, action, expression of joy, sadness, madness that exists briefly and vanishes. Henri Cartier Breson calls this" The Decisive Moment" Capturing it requires good luck, being in the right place at the right time. I may pound the pavement for hours, cropping and editing as I look through the view finder. Then I get home and see the image which I may crop and modifyfurtheruntil I am satisfied with the final product."
The artist, Paul Cunningham, was born in Denver, Colorado in 1954. Starting early on in
his youth, Paul proved to be naturally gifted and incredibly talented as an artist. It was clear
throughout his adolescence that a future in the art industry was very bright. Once in his late teens, Paul took a leap of faith and devoted himself entirely to becoming a professional and well-
Over the years, Paul took many professional art classes throughout the Denver-Metro area.
He also took special technique courses at the Colorado Institute of Art, Red Rocks Community
College, and then ultimately at Colorado State University. His dedication to producing beautiful
and captivating artwork would not stop there. Paul has had the fortune of taking his artistic abilities to new lengths by traveling the world.
The variety of cultures, textures, and colors provide an endless inspiration for all subjects. The Denver-Native’s love for fresh ideas did not stop at traveling. In 2016, Paul and his
wife journeyed to Medellin, Colombia and lived there for 2 1⁄2 years.

Atomic Blonde 30" x 40"
My name is Phyllis Agrest. Since middle school, I started doing illustrations for our monthly school paper. I knew that art would always play a big part in my life. I was an art major in college, and went to the Arts Student League in Manhattan for extra classes. When my husband and I bought in Boca Raton, I eventually applied to the Artist Guild Gallery on Federal Highway. My first show I won first place and it has inspired me to continue painting. I work mostly in acrylic and sometimes use mixed media.
My work is representative of life’s daily struggles. It is in someway called street or graffiti art, depicting todays daily pressures-it is an expression of my feelings. Painting has brought me peace during some very difficult times. I hope you enjoy my work!
Through monochromatic color pallets, unique found objects, toy cars and conscious subject matters. Rene von Richthofen has established a unique and highly identifiable style that brings conversation to the art world. von Richthofen is an Austrian born artist who currently creates in his privately owned studio in Palm Beach, Florida, alongside his renowned sculptor wife Jane
His love for cars comes from an early age, von Richthofen started collecting toy cars as early as the age of 5-years-old when living in Austria. At the age of 16, von Richthofen competed in an Austrian Hill-climb race with his first car, a Mini Cooper S and that was only the beginning. Aside coming from a very art driven household, Rene von Richthofen has always been fascinated by automobiles and finding his inspiration from around the world. As he has adopted a broad perspective when it comes to art and travel, this allows the ideas for his works to flow easily.
Creating these objects allows him to escape from his hectic daily schedule and concentrate exclusively on the present moment, without the distraction of television or music. Sometimes these themes are combined into installations that feature automobile spare parts, children’s toys and model cars which allows each piece to be unique. His work is part of a lifelong love affair from the craftsmanship and design of the automobile. From American horsepower, Italian design to Japanese technology and German perfection these meticulously thought-out creations continue to inspire the works of Rene von Richthofen. As a descendant of Manfred von Richthofen, the World War I fighter pilot, aka Red Baron, von Richthofen’s artwork makes a metaphorical statement about social and cultural issues from global warming to war and racism.

Principe’s career as an artist wasn’t born from this lofty proclamation. It would take ten years as a working artist and a life-shattering tragedy before Salvatore found and accepted his soul’s desire, “to paint the world with love.” Yet, Principe has always been a passionate zealot with an impossibly idealistic view of how the world should be. Born in New York City in 1959, Salvatore Principe was raised in midtown Manhattan in a larger-than-life Italian family. Big brother to two fiery sisters and doted on by a loving mother and protective father, the son of Adam and Anita Principe was bent on blazing his own trail even in adolescence.
A natural athlete but never an academic, Principe’s early accomplishments were usually physical feats. Even his own parents thought he might find success as a professional soccer or tennis player. But fate had another plan and unpredictability would become a familiar team in the life of the unlikely artist.
