Mastroianni was an original NYC Bowery Artist, who continues with his unique medium of gessoed tar paper and mixed media paintings. The once abstract qualities in his work have shifted toward a representational clarity and yet, Mastroianni conveys the soul of our objective world. His work is imprinted with history- a lifespan in stages.
