space Born in Brooklyn NY, Rizzi studied art at the University of Florida (Gainsville), where he began experimenting with painting, printmaking and sculpting. His goal was to combine all three techniques in his work, an aim finally realized in his now well-known 3-D constructions.

Duplicate images, carefully cut out and attached, each one above its counterpart, created richly-textured editions through atruly striking use of traditional printmaking techniques. In his painting, as well, Rizzi often makes three dimensional images a part of the finished work.

Colorful and spirited, James Rizzi's work displays the artist's fascination with contemporary urban themes. His three-dimensional constructions have been acclaimed for their bold and detailed portrayals of everday people and places. Whether enjoying a night on the town, sweating at rush hour on the highway or simply enjoying the changing seasons amidst the urban landscape, Rizzi's friends an neighbors face life's joys and challenges with irrepressible optimism and humor.
