Bruno Casiano contemporary abstracts are currently on display at the Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences, on the first floor. Vivid colors, shapes, and surface texture explode on his canvases. He was recently (December 2009 – February 2010) in a juried art exhibit in The National Exhibition in San Juan Puerto Rico. He has also exhibited his paintings in other North East Ohio galleries.

Bruno earned his BFA in Illustration in 1996 from the Cleveland Institute of Art. He also attended Altos de Chavon School of Design, La Romano, Dominican Republic (1986-1988). He has had the experience of running and owning the Bruno Casiano Gallery on Detroit Avenue in Cleveland (now called “Wall Eye Gallery”).

As a young boy, Bruno grew up in Puerto Rico. He paints from his soul. He relays on his sub-conscience and childhood memories of the island environment & culture to help create his abstract paintings. “This is the key part of the process of my work…where depth of a brilliant sky becomes entangled with leaves, branches, water, color, forms, and high contrast.”

The MSASS community is fortunate to exhibit such incredible collection of paintings. All paintings are for sale. The exhibit will be on the display through the end of May 2010. If you would like to view more of Bruno’s are, please go to the following line:
