Alan Mazzetti’s current work is an inspired depiction of scenery that the artist encounters while living in California. His landscapes and cityscapes contain a sense of movement within the layers of paint. The motion and energy of the city is felt within the blurred shapes and strong lines. These depictions of San Francisco carry with them a feeling of the cities fog and concrete, as glimmers of sunlight and sunsets play against the buildings.
Born in Santa Barbara, CA in 1950, Alan Mazzetti has had an artistic career that has included multiple genres of creative art, including illustration, graphic design, fine art and teaching. After graduating with a BFA from Academy of Art College, San Francisco in 1974, Mazzetti worked at the Design Center in San Francisco before starting his own graphic design company, Mazzetti Graphics, in 1975. He has created illustrations for major brands including American Express, Audubon Society, American Airlines, Chevron, Good Housekeeping, IBM, Jameson Whiskey, NASA, NBA, Nintendo, Readers’ Digest, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, and Visa, to name a few. In 1997 he began to focus more on his fine art and painting with exhibitions throughout the Bay Area and the United States.
