William Vinci (b. 1956) studied at Parsons New School and The Art Students League as well as under

 the tutelage of his grandfather Amadeo DíAponte and the master abstract minimalist Angelo Savelli.   

His work encompasses a broad scope including painting, sculpture, art restoration, furniture design,

interior design, set design and decorative finishes.  Born in Brooklyn, a second generation Italian

American, Vinci moved to Manhattan in 1977 after finishing a degree in Criminal Law.   Shortly

thereafter, searching for the expression of his true calling, he began a series of trips to Italy, specifically

 the region of Tuscany to study art & sculpture and the work of Leonardo Da Vinci.  Upon his return he

began his journey in the arts working with a performance art and  experimental dance group while

 developing his first series of abstract minimalist painting.  At this time his studio on St Marks Place in

the East Village allowed him to develop his white and pale grey relief paintings that brought him to the

attention of Angelo Savelli.  His mentoring by Savelli continued through to 1995, the year of Savelliís

inclusion at the Venice Biennale, his retrospective at the Prato Art Museum and his passing.  Throughout

those years, Vinci had assisted Savelli in his Soho and Water Street studioís preparing for many shows

and art installations as well as   introductions to Savelliís peers the artists Will Barnett and Piero Dorazio.

   Another inspiration to Vinci was the friendship and work of the artist Harriet Glazier whose sculptural

paintings helped influence his return to figurative drawing.  Vinci also completed a series of residential

 mural work during the 1980ís as well as a 9 month restoration project to an Alexander Calder mobile for

a private collection.  Concurrently during these years Vinci experimented with furniture design, interior

design and plaster mediums and exhibited at a Soho gallery that cumulated in the award for new furniture

design at the ICFF Jacob Javits Center in 1991.   Also in the 1990ís Vinci worked on a number of

design-build projects including commercial and restaurant spaces which involved a number of mixed

mediums and materials.  This work included fabrications in steel, glass, stone, plaster, custom water

 elements, plastic resin table tops.  The use of natural and organic materials is prevalent in these spaces

 such as Assets London, Ansonia, Citrus and Josieís.  He continued experimenting with plaster and

returned to figurative drawing which began in his current Flatiron studio.  This combination developed

into a series of sculpture paintings that combine minimalist plaster relief with figurative images in secco. 

 Vinci also continued during this time to branch off into other mediums and created a successful series

 of steel fiber and pigment compositions on canvas that have received attention and are currently with

a private collector in Manhattan.   Vinciís recent work in liquefied plaster painting on paper which is

 a study in shape, color and translucency have been exhibited on the East End of Long Island where

Vinci has a second studio in East Hampton, New York.
