Jennifer Vitalia

SHORT 
ARTIST 
BIO

 

It could be that Jersey-born Jennifer Vitalia was an artist  from birth because she can not  remember a time when art was not part of her daily life and can't imagine her world if she had not pursued and nurtured her love of art. She credits much of her early training to her grandmother, who was an art teacher  and spent much of her free time teaching Jennifer free-hand. This was the beginning of  everything. Jennifer graduated with artistic expression in   fine arts, design, photography and visual arts and moved on to become a multi-talented award winning artist. 

 

Her work has been featured in  Build Magazine, Fashion Weeks in NY,  Latin Mixx Awards Showcased Artwork and The International Contemporary Masters and was a featured designer on Charish, ArtMine.com, Build, AskMen.com, Maxim.com, Aol.com, ThisIs50.com, the 2010 American Breast Cancer Society Benefit, the NYE Body Painting at Trump Plaza, The Cancer Benefit “Silhouettes & Sounds”, “Rock the Block” America's Next Top Model Art Event, and the Chelsea Art Directory.  In addition Jennifer has spent some time working with  G-Unit ads, Artist Makeup Academy, and  Amazon Business Development. She has also worked with Steve Angelo,  Ice-T, Diddy, Vida Guerra, Rafael Casal and many more. 

 

In 2011 Jennifer created the EIA (everything is art) publication. This was a personal project- one that celebrated up and coming artists. She personally interviewed them  and built   a platform for them to promote and sell their artwork. As a collaboration to the magazine, she also  hosted spotlight gallery shows, served as a juror for galleries looking for the next big artist, and consulted artists. She has many fond memories of interviewing some wonderful artists: Russell Simmons, David Bromstad, Ami James, Kitchen Cousins (HGTV), Gotye, Brandon Boyd, Antonio Ballatore, Justin Bua and more. In 2014, however, her work load took up much of her time and because this was a side project, she sadly closed the publication in 2014 ( with a secret hope of one day resurrecting it again). 

 

As she was when she first entered the global world of art, Jennifer is still surrounded  with her cameras, several paint brushes, colored acrylics, oils, body paints, and large canvas as she relishes in abstract style, an oasis that affords her visual forms of emotion that she believes  resonate with a  depth of experience from individual  interpretation.  Her techniques of blending degrees of colors and pressure brush strokes create visual forms that are both real and imaginative  and  come together in breathtaking pieces that captivate your visual senses and inspire your thoughts.   

 

When she is not happily lost in the world of abstract painting,  Jennifer also works her ideas into the art of photography, where she turns the human form into a moving canvas of expression and idea, highlighting specific colors and positioning forms to produce striking abstract and  vocal messages.

 

In the past few years her custom design furniture pieces have been in high demand and much of her time has been dedicated to meeting the orders. She believes this is because of her keen ability to connect to her clients style and vision, creating  functional art. These pieces allow her to partner with art to continue her expression and create a piece that translates to a client's distinct vision.
