Artist of the Month:  Oscar Santiago

It was through my grandparents that I acquired the love of music and the arts. But it was my mother that noticed my interest in drawing at a young age and encouraged me to pursue art. My art education started in high school with strong academic training at the School of Industrial Arts.

It was not until my adult years that I was able to continue to pursue my love for art when I enrolled at The Reilly League of Artists Inc. There I studied drawing and painting in the ‘old master’ tradition.  

My Portrait sketch of Mr. Jesse Jackson was published in ‘Voices from the Street’ Poetry and Art Journal and is in the collection of Rainbow Coalition, Washington, D.C. I was honored to be one of the Judges to the 11th Annual Multimedia Art Show, Town of Brookhaven; and to have one of my Landscape paintings added to the Stony Brook University Medical Center’s Permanent Art Collection.

In addition to works in Private Collections throughout the Tri-state area, I find time to participate in group and juried exhibitions.

When not painting in my studio, I enjoy the challenge of painting the many beautiful sights of LI and attend drawing/painting sessions.
