Giuseppe Napoli (1929-1967)
Giuseppe Napoli was a Mid-Century Modernist Artist of the New York School. Living throughout most of the 1950s and 1960s in Greenwich Village in a small studio space, he was a beloved and talented member of that influential group of artists.
Unafraid to experiment in both the Modernist-Representational style as well as the completely Abstract Expressionist style, he created a strong body of work typical of his period in New York.
Unfortunately, Napoli suffered from Depression and would experience severe mood swings, making the launching of his career a bit difficult. None-the-less, he had many one man shows and participated in numerous group shows.
His explosive life was tragically cut short by suicide in 1967, ending a short but brilliant career as a painter, sculpture and water colorist.
