About Vito Desalvo

  

Vito was originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and went through art training at Carnegie Mellon University. He moved to Chicago in the late 1970’s. Vito then moved to Maine for ten years starting in 1998. He returned and has been creating artwork in Chicago ever since. In his previous artistic working environments, he has exhibited with various museums and galleries. While he still has somewhat friendly relations with the local gallery world, he has presently chosen to go on in his own path.

 His current work, International People in the Know, is his reflection on interpersonal relations in today’s world. He has chosen both fictitious faces as well as actual faces of real people in his life. The backgrounds suggest no clue as to place, identity or nature of the conversation. The artist only offers the finality of the implied statement. In some of the faces is a lingering hint of relating the knowing implication of their comments. Others possess only a sense of innocent use of common use phrases. Vito has made comments related to these pieces that all serious conversations eventually lead to a confirmed answer form of ‘no’. As this work evolved, he has moved forward to observations with his own descriptive notation while maintaining a nonspecific location. The effort is to highlight the interaction rather than particulars. His friend, Stan Klein, works with these images to highlight his writing of their daily life along with Klein’s uncle, Leo and dog, Ella.

Vito Desalvo continues to live in Chicago and still speaks to people. Most have vague positive comments to say about him.
