Rich DiSilvio was born in NY and lives on Long Island. He studied art in college and at the Traditional Academy of Painting, under a protégé of Norman Rockwell.
With a solid foundation in realism, DiSilvio ventured into surrealism, fantasy, and sci-fi art, being inspired by such artists as Salvador Dali, Frank Frazetta and Roger Dean. DiSilvio’s goals as he states “is to focus on the one ability that humans have that no other earthly creature shares, namely the imagination.” He works in oils and acrylics, with an emphasis on digital and photo-manipulation in recent years.
Rich’s art and new media work in the music and entertainment industries earned him an international presence, having worked on projects for Pink Floyd, Yes, Moody Blues, Alice Cooper and on various films. Additionally, as an award-winning author, DiSilvio has written about famous artists in fiction and non-fiction, with his "Arnolfini Art Mysteries" series being perhaps the most notable.
Meanwhile his award-winning fine art has appeared in galleries across the USA, from New York to California. His works appear in private and corporate collections, in the 9-11 Memorial Museum and Italian-American museum in NYC, while his painting of the famous composer Peter Tchaikovsky resides at the Tchaikovsky Estate Museum in Votkinsk, Russia.
The Animal Series is based primarily on two premises, namely that our fellow inhabitants have always enamored humans, be they domesticated and friendly or wild predators. As such, they make appealing subject matter.
And second is that the human species differs from the animal kingdom in its ability to create what does not exist, as the imagination is not something our fellow creatures share. Thus, this series celebrates those combined aspects, to be either whimsical or provocative.

Congratulations to Lillian Anna Blouin for her acceptance into Fusion Art's Featured Artist Members Gallery.
Lillian Anna Blouin is an award-winning, hyper realistic artist based in Newport Beach, California, USA.
After receiving a BA in Illustration from Laguna College of Art and Design, she went on and built a successful career as an illustrator. However, after showcasing in several galleries within California, she quickly found much more fulfillment within the fine art community.
Lillian has a unique way of taking ordinary objects and creating surrealistic worlds. A devoted student of hyper-realism Lillian’s unique style of painting seeks to bridge together the worlds of the real and the unreal. Each piece is a surreal exploration of everyday objects with multiple interpretations behind each painting.
Lillian was awarded 1st Place Overall/Best in Show for her artwork, "Disordered Mind," in the Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery’s 6th Annual “Patters, Textures & Forms” Online Art Exhibition in October 2022 and selected this Featured Artist membership as her award.
"Disordered Mind," uses the image of a Rubix Cube to symbolize a mind in turmoil. The mind of the cube has been scrambled, put in disarray, and even broken held together only in the most unstable of ways. This was meant to represent how many people felt after the pandemic, our minds tired and unfocused our plans broken and scrambled.
Lillian also won 5th Place in LST’s “Created in Isolation” Art Exhibition in the Spring/Summer of 2020.
She is a Fusion Art Featured Artist Member. Click below to visit her member artist webpage and to learn more about her.
