Zingaro

Very few artists today have managed to master the ancient craft of vitreous enamel like artist Zingaro, renowned for his large-scale enamel artworks. After attending Swain School of Design and apprenticing in Cape Cod, young Zingaro began his artistic career at age 16 as a muralist and sign writer. He eventually opened a studio of his own in Madrid, New Mexico in 1975, which later expanded to Santa Fe. In 2001, Zingaro became the assistant to the master enamellist Craig Ruwe, and after Ruwe's untimely death in 2004, Zingaro carried on the historied craft of vitreous enamel.

Zingaro’s medium of choice, vitreous enamel, traces as far back as the ancient Egyptians and Romans. The highly involved process, in which fine colored glass powder is melted onto thin copper sheets, allows Zingaro to create artworks that transform throughout the day as light upon the works shifts and changes. Carefully created from a patchwork of individual tiles, the compositions boast impressive arrays of colors and forms, ranging from abstract splashes of color to images of flowers from Zingaro’s own garden, where he and his wife, Wanda, enjoy spending time.

Zingaro’s work is displayed in many public collections including the National Dance Institute in Manhattan and the Institute for Cultural Diversity in Berlin as well as private collections in Vail and Breckenridge, Colorado, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Scottsdale, Arizona and Naples, Florida, among others
