ABOUT THE ARTIST

Gentile is an artist whose work is best characterized as a study in change and transformation.  his art captures the inherent dichotomies of civilization and the primitive, commercial and aesthetic, the familiar and the exotic. As he juxtaposes provocative concepts, he produces substantive art that challenges the viewer to see beyond mere physical presence through subtext, and depth. His art evokes sentiments and coherent narratives, introspection and examination, fury and elation, crisis and delight, art and vice.
Throughout, he has continually produced  works in sculpture ,drawing, painting, and drawing.  His influences are diverse ranging from Dada, Pop, Surrealism, Graffiti, Tribal Art, classical Chinese Brush Drawing and New York Urbanism. .
 
 He divides his time between studios in New York City and Bali.
