Intense and flamboyant Sammy Pasto (1921-2013) oil painting executed with a palette knife, giving it an interesting texture and strong animated colors! It sits in a simple thick walnut frame and is painted on board. He was a California Modernist painter who resided and worked in San Diego, California. Pasto’s greatest passion was art. Also a musician, he was consumed by an intense need to create since his youth, and music had an influence on his artwork in that his lines and shapes were influenced by rhythm and harmony. But in the second part of his life, his paintings featured the cacophony of our new world and his efforts to fit into it! Pasto’s work was featured in various solo and group exhibitions in San Diego, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and New York. The painting rests in a simple walnut frame.
