His work puts viewers in a trance.”
Currently, Dellorco shows his fine art oils and limited edition prints at galleries spanning the United States, at the prestigious, Beverly Hills, Affaire in the Garden, and on major cruise lines. He has been featured on the covers of “Premier Magazine,” “Art Business News,” “Society and Décor Magazine,” and also listed among “50 Top Artists for 2012” by “Art Business News.”
