Charlie Visconage (b. 1986, Baltimore, Maryland, USA) is an American self-taught artist. When other kids told him he was a “bad drawer” in school, he believed it for far too long. In 2013, a friend suggested he paint just for the hell of it, and Charlie found a new means of expression that he loved and hasn’t stopped painting since. Charlie makes landscape paintings, portraits, immersive experiences, and sculptures. Charlie’s work focuses on capturing the darkly comedic moments of our time, finding joy in spite of the slow death of capitalism and the end of the American empire.
Charlie’s work has been shown and collected in the US and all over the world. Every few years, Charlie recharges his creative energy with long-term artistic residency programs, including those in Slovenia, Japan, and Portugal. After 13 years as a DC resident, Charlie is moving to the Porto metro area in Portugal to continue his creative journey.
