Amicosante is currently exploring the connection between the sublime beauty of big cats, butterflies and bees and their continued existence in the modern world. By visually placing them in unlikely settings he seeks to throw their magical charm into high relief while drawing attention to the paradox that while we revere these majestic animals and insects, our inexorable sprawl into their habitat is forcing them into extinction. Amicosante’s paintings have been exhibited throughout the United States, including the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Cahoon Museum in Cotuit, MA, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and the Cotuit Center for the Arts. He is a member of the Copley Society of Art in Boston, MA. Vincent was a participant in the 2009 Biennale Internazionale Dell’ Arte Contemporanea in Florence, Italy. Trained at New York City’s School of Visual Arts, he has established a reputation as a magic realist painter.
