1990 - 1996
(Works created in California, USA)

This Italian-Australian born artist migrated to the USA in 1990 and is now a US citizen residing in Hawaii. In 1996, the artist took a sabbatical from painting and has spent the past years writing novels.  He restricted his creations to one or two paintings per year through ‘96, concentrating on quality large canvases and the occasional mega mural. The artist has turned his back on the world of art reproduction following many years of his originals being distributed world wide as prints, posters, greeting cards, puzzles, murals and the list goes on.  In fact, between 1975 and 1996, Jason had over 200 works licensed for publication. His earlier works can be found in print and poster shops and can be researched on any search engine. Many private collections feature Denaro originals, including golfer Greg Norman, actor Buddy Ebsen and radio personality Rush Limbaugh.  Since moving from Australia, Jason Denaro’s works  have become more realistic, more refined, and his genre far more selective. 

Jason Denaro was chosen as one of the worlds top 100 living wildlife artists by Wildlife Art Magazine, yet even with this accolade, the artist refused to enter into a painting frenzy and capitalize on his rating by churning out works, as so many artists unfortunately do. By limiting his works to one or two originals annually, he has wisely tightened the supply /demand market and has successfully been slotted into the ranks of highly collectible artists.

Jason has always been open to supporting worthy charitable causes. His involvement with major wildlife and environmental movements is well known. In the mid seventies and early eighties, he led the move to ban all French products from entering into Australia as a prelude to stopping French atmospheric testing off the east coast of Australia. His television and press interviews resulted in massive trade union black bans of all French goods. Ships laid anchored off shore unable to enter Australian ports and unload their French goods. This was truly a case of the brush being mightier than the sword. When baby harp seals were being butchered for their white pelts by Canadian sealers, Jason Denaro again took up the cause and instigated a thoroughly successful ban of all Canadian products in Australia.

The artist’s final “one-man-show” held in Port Macquarie, New South Wales, the artist’s home state, resulted in a sell out exhibition, raising sufficient funds for The Koala Sanctuary to assist with the building of the sanctuary’s Koala Quarantine ward for the treatment of conjunctivitis and Chlamydia among the koala population.  

This artist is not boisterous, not effected by recognition and has no ego aspirations, yet his presence is felt when he appears at selected charity functions, where he supports many causes including Wildlife Rescue, Greenpeace, and Save the Children to name a few. As a speaker, he has a magnetic charm, that has held him in high esteem for public seminars and charitable events. He is traveled, worldly, yet sensitive to the needs and emotions of those around him., a standout personality, sensitive, feeling and imaginative. It has been said by those who follow his works, that his most creative years are the now, the present, yet each year that passes produces new work that continue to leave one wondering, just how great can this artist's work become.

Agency, licensing and gallery inquiries welcome.
