Ross Pino is an artist that shines light into the darkness. “Into the Light” He is an advocate for mental health awareness through the arts and entertainment. Through his artistry, he shows pathways into the light through destructive and negative thought patterns.
The solo exhibition curated by Sadaf Padder will take place at L IC Arts Open Gallery, Gallery One. The Factory in New York City.
In his own life, Ross managed a childhood of instability, navigating a household of addiction.
Through frequent moves, Ross found his first creative outlet in skateboarding.
As a young adult, he honed this sense of style into a love of fashion and art where he established a career in NYC as an actor and model.
A self-taught artist, Ross began painting alongside his young daughter. Inspired by her child-like play with paints, his light, playful style emerged and blended with his raw, edgy landscapes. “Into the Light” forays into Ross’s obsession with anatomy, apocalypses, numerical synchronicities, and poetry to spell out a spiritual pathway to peace and release.
