Born in NYC, Vic has been painting for over twenty-five years. He studied at the Art Students League of New York and the Ted Jacobs École Albert DeFois in France where he honed the skill of "restructured" realism. Over the past few years, his style has evolved to encompass both the art of urban plein aire as well as traditional studio work.

Vic has traveled extensively though Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East studying the work of the old and new Masters and eating good food. He has exhibited in the U.S. and Europe.
