Steven Lavaggi is internationally recognized as the “Artist of Hope” who has been a professional artist for over 45 years. He is known for his imaginative, original paintings, grand scale murals, as well as his home decor and jewelry line.
The two primary series of Lavaggi paintings featured at ART on 5th are from the Intuitives and the Glimpse of Glory collection. The Intuitives are large color fields created with a spontaneous, fluid technique. These bursts of color evoke a sense of spatial intrigue where the mind can wander and be captivated.
The Glimpse of Glory paintings were inspired from a vision the artist had decades ago in which it appeared he was looking into the light of eternity. Lavaggi captured a drawing of that image, which became one of his most successful series of paintings.
Faith, hope and love are the core messages for Steven as he has always creatively reflected light in the midst of the darkness, encouraging the viewers to believe in the higher purposes of life through a spiritual perspective. In creating these truly sincere expressions of hope for our world, it is the artist’s intent to edify those who own his art by sharing this vision with others. In the end, only what we do out of a sincere heart of love for others will last for all eternity. The art of Steven Lavaggi encourages us to live our lives in such a way that we may create and live a legacy worth leaving behind.
