Izzy Cubito is an American Artist creating in oil, acrylics and mixed-media. He describes himself as constantly  emerging with passions in Art, Music and craftsmanship. This years' portfolio of paintings encompasses different locations and subjects using oil as the primary medium. This includes figurative work and landscapes of Florida and New York. This portfolio of paintings also includes some illustrative forays in portraiture including a dalliance into self-portraiture.
 
In this portfolio Izzy shadows the works of  Brian Rutenberg, Karen Massingill, Kate Woods, Ben Lustenhouwer and famous Italian painter Amadeo Modigliani among so many influences. 
 
Artist Statement
 I have thoroughly enjoyed working countless hours on each and every painting featured in this portfolio. I tend to look back and judge my progress each year on my paintings in this yearly portfolio – I can confidently say that it was certainly a good year! The title of this portfolio Real~Unreal  is derived from a statement of Amadeo Modigliani’s. “What I look for is neither reality nor unreality but the subconscious, the instinctive mystery of the human race”.
