Jean-Paul Mallozzi was born and raised in Queens NYC, and received a scholarship to attend the Rhode Island School Of Design. Mallozzi’s work explores the broad spectrum of the human condition. Ranging from youthful to mature content, the work encompasses and reveals the idea that while emotions are amorphous, each one emits a color that echoes complex emotional states that all of us can relate to–no matter what language we happen to speak.
In his new series entitled “Familiars,” Mallozi takes an in depth look at the human condition and the subtle details of intimate male relationships. He conveys a soft and romantic look at the human emotions that are generally overly-sexualized and juxtaposes it with a vibrant colour palette and extremely painterly aesthetic.
