Mark Crisanti is an artist unique to the contemporary art world, as he strives to provide subtle elements in a straightforward
manner that collectively create an evocative work of art. By pairing family-owned relics with figurative paintings,
he makes works that are both nostalgic, and highly personal. One of Crisanti's most recent paintings creates dynamic
visuals with a stark contrast of color and form between foreground and background. In this untitled work, a bird in a
business suit is painted atop vintage National Geographic covers.
