About Frank DePietro
Frank DePietro grew up in Scranton, PA, where at an early age, he had his first encounters with oil painting. These childhood experiences with the medium led to his life-long endeavor of painting.
After receiving his Bachelors of Art degree from Bloomsburg University, he moved to Philadelphia where he studied at many of the area art institutions including Tyler School of Art and Studio Incamminati. Frank continued to live and work in Philadelphia for several years, practicing and experimenting with various techniques and concepts in painting.
In 2010, he and his family moved to Kennett Square in Chester County, PA. He quickly became heavily influenced by the Realist tradition of the Brandywine Valley painters. Frank has since adopted much of this influence into his work while combining it with the Modernist principles he has practiced over the course of his career.
