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 2014, 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, 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 locally in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area and internationally in Poland, Slovenia, and Japan. Every few years, Charlie recharges his creative energy with long-term artistic residency programs, including those in Slovenia, Japan, and Portugal. Charlie currently lives and works in Washington, DC.
