ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Raphael Tiberino began painting at the age of four. The style of his latest work can be traced back to his love of comics as a child. He has been in the spotlight as a professional artist for over 25 years. As a co-founder of the Subculture Gallery in New York City, he curated as well as participated in many art shows as well as exhibiting and curating the "Kapow! Boom! Zap!" show, at the Rush Arts Gallery in Chelsea, NY. At that time, Raphael was illustrating "Queenie's Story", for Slave Labor Graphics. The story is based on haunting tales his grandmother shared with him as a child.
Teaching art is also a passion of Raphael's and he has been teaching off and on since graduating from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. His art resides in many collections. His preference of pen and ink, as well as his love of oil paint usually keeps him up until the wee hours of the morning.
Raphael is also the President of his family's museum. The Ellen Powell Tiberino Memorial Museum was set up by his late father Joseph in 1999. It houses an extensive collection of Ellen and Joe's artwork featuring oil paintings, prints, graphite drawings and relief murals. The museum also features the art of 20 other artists that Raphael and his father collected over the years. Known by the term "living museum", artists congregate outside its courtyard for painting
