Erik Maniscalco is an American visual artist, born and raised in the Hudson Valley Region of New York. He earned his BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, and currently lives and works in Brooklyn. For his series, Signs of Self, the artist paints large scale portraits.
There’s an acknowledgment of self within every portrait. A pathway towards a fundamental truth which houses the human experience. These paintings are an attempt at sharing some aspect of my own journey, while inviting the viewer to engage in an exploration of their own self. – Erik Maniscalco
