Ken Scaglia was raised in Indiana and educated at both Purdue University and Yale University. His training in illustration and graphic design has provided him with skills in draughtsmanship, color, and composition. His long-held interest in rendering detailed materials serves him well in both his ventures as realist artist and trompe l’oeil painter. His work can be found in private collections across the United States and he continues to show his work in galleries. "My interest lies in the exploration of line movement created by the flowing mass of metal, glass, and chrome of classic automobiles and motorcycles. Composition, color, and light form the structure of my paintings. I try to use all these elements to reveal themselves in the tightly cropped views I choose for my work. My compositions capture a moment of crisp, clear beauty that celebrates an automobile’s style and character. I look for opportunities to paint challenging subjects that require a worthy investment of my emotion, time, and skill. As the painting reveals itself on the canvas, I also really like to enjoy the process. No tears. Lots of smiles."
