New York artist Xiomáro (SEE-oh-MAH-ro) breathes life into iconic American figures and historical events to make them relevant in the 21st century. After recovering from cancer, he transitioned from a varied career as a musician, entertainment industry attorney and artist manager into the field of art photography. Inspired by the example of photographers like Eadweard Muybridge, Carleton Watkins and Ansel Adams, he seeks to create artistic images that also promote the appreciation, conservation and visitation of America’s parks and historical sites.
Xio is frequently commissioned by the National Park Service. His career began as an Artist-in-Residence at Connecticut's Weir Farm National Historic Site ,where he is now a Visiting Artist. His collections are exhibited nationally at institutions like Harvard University and have been purchased for permanent art collections such as the one at Brigham Young University in Utah. Xio’s work has been covered by The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Fine Art Connoisseur and many other newspapers, magazines, radio programs and internet sources.
