Frank Adorno has dedicated his life to the mastery of his art. Before receiving a formal education in Fine Art at Columbia College in Chicago, Adorno’s studies landed him in Rome, Italy. Under the tutelage of Italian scholars, and surrounded by the works of masters, Adorno confirmed his passion and dedication to art at an early age. Adorno first envisioned his style while still in school. It would be many years until his unique style would come to fruition.
Adorno made a living as a decorative artist for more than 15 years. He approached each project with an artist’s eye, and the precision of a craftsman. Frank has worked with companies such as The McDonald’s Corporation, Joe Caputo and Sons and Sullivan’s Steakhouse nationwide as well as Chicago-based restaurants and lounges. He has also worked with some of the city’s most prestigious interior designers and architects to create unique living spaces.
Today, Adorno’s focus is on unique, individual pieces of art that relay his vision and style of reflective art. His new found technique ultimately came to fruition after numerous failed attempts to affix reflective material onto canvas in a manner that was supportive of his vision. Frank’s style is so unique that his art is patent pending. Inspired by his travels, each series of Frank’s reflective artwork is named after a location that he has visited, or a subject he has photographed. His works are currently displayed in private collections located in Miami and Chicago.
