Born in Bronx, New York, Chuck Sabatino attended school there, and by the time he was in high school he was an avid painter and became interested in Advertising. He attended "Cartoon & Illustrators School", which became "The School of Visual Arts".

For 25 years he worked in New York City as an art director T.V producer on many ads and commercials including for American Motors, Johnson & Johnson & Proctor & Gamble, winning 24 awards.

In his years of filming across the country, he became very interested in the American Indian. In 1988 he moved to Scottsdale, Az. His paintings are strong still-life compositions, realistic in detail. He uses the tenchique of "Chiaroscuro", which is the use of strong lights and darks. Even though the style is photo-realism the viewer can always see the hand of the artist.

Biography from McLarry Fine Art:
Arizona-based still-life painter, Chuck Sabatino, has long studied and collected the historic and prehistoric Southwest pueblo pottery that he has become so well known for painting.

Sabatino was born in 1935 in Bronx, New York.  An avid painter by the time he was in high school, ahe then became interested in advertising.  He attended the Cartoon & Illustrator School in New York, which later became the School of Visual Arts.  For the 25 years that followed, he painted consistently in his free-time while he worked in New York City as an art director and T.V. producer creating countless ads and commercials for companies including American Motors, Johnson & Johnson and Proctor & Gamble.

Not only did his commercial work during this time earn him 24 awards, it also exposed him to the Southwest through travel where he became very interested in Native American Art and History.  Upon retiring in 1988, he and his wife Millie moved to the home they had built in Scottsdale, Arizona where Sabatino turned his full attention to his painting.

Sabatino's works are meticulously detailed renditions of his beautifully composed still-lifes in rich warm hues.  He paints the pottery of the Zuni, Acoma, Santo Domingo, Cochiti, San Ildefonzo and Santa Clara often arranged alongside beaded moccasins, arrow bags, dresses, flowers, the photos of E. S. Curtis and other paper works.  His combinations create a multiplicity in texture and color, and represent a range of visual and historical interests.

Sabatino's work has been featured in books and such publications as Southwest Art and Art of the West.  His pieces have been displayed at Leanin' Tree Museum of Western Art and adorn a growing number of private collections internationally.
