Rene Carol Capone (b. September 22, 1978) is an American painter known for his depiction of the male figure with whimsical and mysterious imagery often used together. He also works with elements of fable and myth. Capone's art conveys a sense of wonder, exploration and discovery. Twenty years ago, 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 now highly prized by collectors and on the walls of private and corporate collectors around the world.

He attended Parsons School of Design in New York City on a merit Scholarship. Majored in Fine Arts and focused his efforts of rendering the figure. Capone also attended The San Francisco Art Institute in SF, CA for continue education. Currently he resides in The Bay Area of California.


His works have been compiled in the books "Any Given Moment" and "A Boy Named", both of which are available on Amazon.com

He self-published a graphic novel "The Legend of Hedgehog Boy" in 2011, a story about a boy who ventures into the woods to find his identity. The book struck a deep cord within the youth of the LGBT community. Other publishing achievements include: "Stripped: The Illustrated Male" from Bruno Gmunder. Featured in RFD Magazine, The Leslie Lohman Arts Journal, Blue, XY, Wilde Literary Journal and most recently The Advocate interviewed Capone with arts and culture critic Adam Sandel. K-OODI Art Magazine from Helsinki featured his art in their spring issue of 2016.

Between 2014 -2017 Rene had a series of bone and hip replacement surgeries due to side affects from medications given to him by doctors. A medical malpractice case of epic proportions with the guilty individuals escaping consequence. He spent four years in state of severe disability and yet continued to work on his craft through out the ordeal.

Currently he is recovering from those surgeries. "The Zebra Boy Chronicles" a series of paintings and drawings created over the past three years was his metaphorical way of commenting on the experience of surgery and the betrayal of physicians he knew personally. Now in 2017 Rene can once again walk and is looking forward to the future.
