Brooklyn, New York native Roland Ruocco attended The High School of Art and Design in New York City and Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Early on his artwork was influenced by comic book illustration and urban graffiti, then in college the old masters especially the Romantic painters. This unique convergence has resulted in a compelling body of work.
“ My artworks convey my perception of the world around me, involving diverse topics, subject matter and artistic styles, sometimes identifying problems and offering solutions, other times focusing on the beauty of nature, or perhaps mechanical design. It depends on my mood and inspiration, I like the challenge of trying different artistic directions. My current work includes painting, drawing, sculpting and casting, LED driven structural constructions, video tracks, map-making, and digital design.”
Since the mid-nineties as Roland has actively exhibited in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach County, and New York City, his list of collectors has steadily increased. His Florida based studio also serves as home for his New Light Foundation, Inc., a non profit charitable organization that conducts community outreach programs promoting the arts and education.
