(American, b.1958) is a Contemporary artist, best known for his urban landscape paintings. Though rendered with a high degree of realism, his work is characterized by gestural, energetic brushstrokes, and is heavily influenced by Abstract Expressionism. Incorporating contemporary themes like Wall Street and big business, his lush, haunting paintings often have the tendencies of Social Realism. Aronson attended Boston University, earning his BFA in painting in 1980 and his MFA in painting in 1982. He is the recipient of many awards, including the St. Botolph Foundation Grant for painting, a Rhode Island State Council for the Arts Grant, the William P. & Gertrude Schweitzer Painting Prize from the National Academy of Design, the Thomas Fisher Award from the American Society of Architectural Perspectivists, and the Childe Hassam Purchase Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, among others.

Francisco, Tibor de Nagy Gallery
