About Wayne Montecalvo

Wayne Montecalvo (he/him) works with image, process, and a variety of materials in order to push the confines of art-making to reinvent, rather than reproduce an image. Allowing an idea to emerge organically through curiosity, he manipulates the materials to create unexpected results that distort and redefine. Wayne starts with something expected, and ends up with something mysterious, aiming for singular or unique outcomes within a defined image. Taking a painterly approach gives him the option for discovery by welcoming chance occurrences to create a new way to see a familiar object. 

Wayne’s awards and honors include the Awagami Artist-in-Residence Program at Awagami Paper Factory in Tokushima, Japan; NYFA MARK ’09; Two Full Fellowship Awards for residencies at the Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, VT; Two Residencies at the Frans Masereel Zentrum voor Grafiek, Kasterlee, Belgium; John Michael Kohler Foundation Arts/Industry Artist-in-Residence, Sheboygan, WI; Women’s Studio Workshop Artists’ Fellowship; and an Artists At Work: New York State Council on the Arts.
