MVR Artist Bio
Artist Michael Victor Ruggiero MVR
MVR nurtured signature drawing skills continuously from high school in Ohio through the Harvard Graduate School of Design in the1990's.
From 2000 with contemporary life & landscape subjects, he advanced as a painter/pastel artist in New York City -- simultaneous with extensive digital practice as a NY State Registered Landscape Architect RLA.
In Spring 2018, he integrated digital processes from
design practice into his fine art for two exhibitions with Agora Gallery Contemporary Art NY, merging the two disciplines in the process.
Subsequently, in July 2019 for a Contemporary Art Barcelona exhibition, he coined the mixed media process he employs as the ▪XL Process and end results as ▪XL Works, which now underlie/constitute a unique brand of Contemporary Impressionism that MVR calls,
"for the sake of clarity, pxIm-pressionism".
In 2019 the ambitious The Landscape of 21C Liberties Triptych, which accelerated the ▪XL Process threefold, established his Sheroes NY Series.
