Ever since Mark Pilato finished his first sculpture at nine, he has been building a vocabulary in clay and form. This personal process of thinking has enabled him to sculpt his thoughts resulting in meaningful, sensitive statements made visible in clay, wax and bronze.
Each of Mark’s sculptures represents a journey of exploration and discovery. As he develops a work of art, Mark continually modifies the form often hundreds of times sometimes by wiping the form almost completely away, leaving just a shadow of what was and then finding something more as the sculpture evolves.
As an internationally recognized artist, Mark Pilato’s works reside in private and public collections throughout the United States, as well as in Italy and Japan. A graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, he has made a name for himself in the fine art world with his distinctive style and innovative techniques for creating bronze sculpture.
