Phil Gazzolo’s creative practice ranges from flat canvas into three-dimensional art. Whether working on paper, wood or more unconventional surfaces, Gazzolo’s affinity for pattern and geometric design shines through.

“I’ve got good skills. I study what I’m going to do and how I do it. I take my time and focus on the design. What materials I am going to use. I like to use different kinds of beads and bottle caps. I like to do canvases and different objects.”

Gazzolo’s art can be identified by his thoughtful placement of lines and shapes. Primary colors and thick, even strokes are common throughout his portfolio. When it comes to creating these simple, impactful, pieces, Gazzolo recognizes the importance of patience and determination.

“I just focus on how the shape looks and how it’s going to pop. Straight lines. Different patterns. Make it even and connect. Really focus on your work. That’s the most important thing. If you rush it won’t look that good. You learn a lot about art if you know what you’re doing.”

Gazzolo’s artwork has been featured in local galleries and on the Arts of Life studio merchandise, including a series of greeting cards.
