CUSTOM MURALS AND CANVAS PAINTINGS
Rian Basilio ART
I began painting in 2013 because of my friend and fellow musician Josh Cardinali. When I first met Josh he always had really dope paintings on all of his cases and amps. Art that he made himself. I remember seeing a piece one day that he painted on the inside of his pedal case. It was this beautiful woman with long flowing hair. I was just in awe of the skill and depth of the piece. In my ever growing urge to find new and exciting ways to express myself artistically, i finally asked Josh to teach me the technique of spray painting stencils that he used. From my very first canvas I was hooked. I began designing and painting pieces on a weekly basis. Soon after I began to sell my work to friends and family. That grew into being approached by people to do custom work.
Fast forward to 2016 and I am painting on an almost full time basis. The biggest and most challenging piece I have done so far is a 3 story tall x 130ft. long wall mural for an Interior design company named Tangram Interiors. That job brought Josh and I full circle as we both designed and executed the piece together. Below you can watch a time lapse video of us painting that mural. The gallery to the left consists of some of my favorite pieces over the last 3 years.
