About Rene Capone
Rene Carol Capone (b. September 22, 1978) is an American painter known for his depiction of the figure with whimsical and mysterious imagery often used together. He also works with stories and myths.
Capone began his career as an artist creating dreamlike, sensual, often homoerotic images of young men in search of love, identity, and their place in the world. His paintings and drawings are highly prized by art collectors in the LGBT community, they now hang on the walls of private and corporate collectors around the world.
Born in Niskayuna. A small town in upstate New York. He is the oldest of four children. His relationship to the famed mobster Al Capone remains a well kept mystery. His Birth certificate legally says Capone.
He attended the Parsons School of Design in New York City, NY with a scholarship in fine arts. Upon completion in 2000, he moved to California where he still currently resides.
Private collectors of Capone's work can be found in the United States of America, Canada, Sweden, England, France, Japan, and the Netherlands. In 2004 Glaxo Smith Kline became his first corporate collector.
He took a four-year absence from creating fine art to dig deep into the topic of child abuse in a graphic novel titled "The Legend of Hedgehog Boy." The novel struck a deep chord with readers, and transformed the artist as well. Other publishing achievements include: "Stripped: The Illustrated Male" from Bruno Gmunder. His work has been featured in, RFD Magazine, XY magazine, Blue, Joey, Y&A, as well as being featured widely over the world wide web. Capone's art was reviewed by The Advocate in 2015 by arts and culture editor Adam Sandel. Recently his art has ben published on book covers from France to Israel & now will be the featured artist for a series of books from arnolandpress.com called "The Goldberg Variations" Volumes 1- 4
Capone was hospitalized for multiple bone replacement procedures taking four years to complete in 2016. We are pleased to say he made a full recovery, although he is made of titanium from the waist down. A series of art titled 'The Chronicles of Zebra Boy" was created during this time period. Both POZ magazine & HIV PLUS featured the artwork in articles titled "Turning Scars Into Art."
He opened a small art gallery & studio in Cherryland CA as place to recover.
2018 has seen Capone heal, recover & move on with his life. It's beautiful thing to defy death. One should consider it therapy. He continues to work constantly and at 40 years old has created a body of work that defies logic in volume and scope of emotional content. Most of his original art can be found and purchased on www.renecaponeart.com
