COSIMO CARMOSINO – Italian Canadian Artist
Born February 18, 1963 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Cosimo Carmosino discovered his love for artistic expression at a young age. He studied Illustration and Design at Dawson College and his versatility in the creative fields grew as he cultivated his passions and pursued further studies in fine arts, photography and computer graphics and won academic awards in these disciplines. Collaborating with talented professionals in art studios, advertising agencies and animated film companies, gave him the opportunity to further fine tune his artistic skills and talents. Eager to share his knowledge, he taught at the University of Moncton in New Brunswick and other learning institutions.
Cosimo now draws upon many years of experience in fine arts and commercial art and has now returned to his roots of his creative passions which is fine arts and is fully devoted to paint and create contemporary fine arts. He is now offering his expertise in high-end murals to clients as well. With one foot in the past and an eye towards the future Mr. Carmosino reflects on his extraordinary gamut of skills and creative visual competencies: “The role of an artist in all creative fields has changed in some ways due to the evolution of man discovering new materials, different techniques in their crafts, new technologies and of course the age of computers. There’s something special about traditional art because this visual language is something we can touch as we interpret the emotions and messages,” says Cosimo. “I’m deeply committed to innovate to the highest standards of excellence in craftsmanship in my paintings, gold leaf paintings, silver leaf paintings, stained glass art incorporated with paintings, low relief sculpture, drawings and mixed media that sometimes I combine with murano glass and crystal. I enjoy to use techniques, mediums and trompe l’oeil effects that pop out of my supports,” adds the artist.
We can describe his art as someone who does art with a classical background with a contemporary innovative approach that marries his creativity into contemporary realism. The luminescent splendor and beauty of the paintings and artworks of Cosimo is present which combines light, shadows, color and textures in harmony to reveal artistic depth and sensibility in his visual garden. Cosimo’s paintings and artworks are owned by numerous private and corporate collectors and are displayed in many exhibitions and various venues across Canada, the United States and Italy.
Cosimo Carmosino recently participated in a large mural artwork creative project with some top international artists that was done for the international earth summit in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil for June 2012 and will go on a tour across Canada and most probably go to various parts of the world which may include Italy and it is scheduled to have it's resting place in The United Nations building in New York. The mural art is called, "We Are All One" and features a theme of sustainable development, solidarity, peace and harmonizing various cultures of people. A documentary book by one of the co-creators of this project, a philosophical poem by a world renowned chinese artist and also music is included in this creative project. I'm presenting working on the original music with a group of friends and work colleagues in the music business to be part of this "We Are All One" creative project.
Cosimo participated in an exhibition celebrating 150 Years of Italian Art & Italian Unity at La Casa d’Italia in Montreal, QC, Canada during the summer of 2011 along with selected Italo-Canadian and Italian artists.
Cosimo has turned his lifelong passion for creative excellence, exploration and execution into a fine art indeed.
