cat dalton portella


Dalton Portella has been drawing and painting most of his life, starting in Miami taking art classes on dalton portella bioweekends as a young boy. His formal education includes a degree in art from United States International University in San Diego and coursework at the Parsons School of Design in New York. Dalton lived in New York City for twenty years, painting continuously and working commercially as a freelancer for Miramax for the last ten, retouching their posters and, more recently, branching into design. “My concept is to challenge the definition of painting by blurring the distinctions of medium. By marrying different mediums, a metaphor emerges for what I see as necessary in order for our society to survive—the acceptance of differing philosophies. In art, the acceptance of new technologies and mediums is essential for innovation and growth.”
