Denise DeSpirito

Log-in to Favorite

Artist Denise DeSpirito was born on Long Island and now lives and
works in Brooklyn. Her current work uses minimal line to reference the myriad, excessive images she encounters daily living in New York and through the media. Painting directly with brush and gouache, rather then sketching pieces first, this intuitive approach allows these
images to guide her art practice and the use of a simple, continuous
line acts as a mapping of her experiences. She holds a BFA in Fine Art
from School of Visual Arts has shown throughout the US in galleries
from the east coast, such as Eastern District Gallery in Brooklyn, to
the West at New Image Art in West Hollywood, California. She has
received numerous awards and residencies including a Joan Mitchell
Foundation Grant for her stay as an artist-in-residence at the Santa
Fe Art Institute and has been an artist in residence at Artist
Alliance Inc.'s rotating studio program in Manhattan's Lower East
