Vincent Donato


My name is Vincent Donato, born March 30th 1995. I am a self-taught, conceptual abstract painter and sculptor from Staten Island, NY. My family contains artists on both the maternal and paternal sides, granting me the freedom to grow artistically and express myself through drawing from a young age. In my earlier years, my initial appreciation and inspiration for art came from my exposure to graffiti and street art. More recently, my inspiration is sourced from artists such as Alberto Giacometti, Francis Bacon, and Joseph Bueys. 

Roses have been an unwavering symbol throughout my lifetime and I choose to incorporate roses in my work. My family name is Roselli, and my grandmother is known to hang roses to dry and rosebuds throughout the family home. As I began my painting and sculpting journey with no education in fine arts, I aimed to create realistic roses in oil -with the intention of acquiring a greater skill set to progress to creating more difficult subjects. Although I did not change from roses to other subjects, my art began to take a different direction leading to something greater.

The roses became more abstract and pointed influence to my formative years of tagging and graffiti. As the roses changed, my viewpoint of how the roses could be interpreted began to change. Through the positioning and placement of the roses, the roses began to symbolize life, death, and rebirth.

● Vertical: Life
● Horizontal: Death
● Inverted / beheaded: Rebirth & the preservation/ mummification of life

Utilizing the concepts of the rose and life-death spectrum, I work from the emotional connection of abstraction while producing a visceral experience to the viewer.
