Born and raised in Toronto, Joseph Romantini  is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design and Academy of Design.  Focusing on contemporary realism, Joseph uses a technique of thinly applied layers of oil paint, and added brush and utility scratches for texture, to create a realistic and abstract effect in each of his works.
