Theo Dapore as of 3-20-09 is 54 years old. He has lived the majority of his life in Vermilion, Ohio and now resides in Dothan, Alabama. His studio is located in Wiregrass Commons Mall in Dothan.
Theo's art career started with listing his fine art paintings in online art galleries in August of 2005. He has never been represented by any brick and mortar fine arts gallery.
At this time he is developing his own unique style of art, a style that is distinct from other artists. Working acrylics wet into wet he combines broad blending with many other techniques into one painting. Making this unorthodox mix come together with continuity and a continual feel. When asked about the art, Dapore says he is in his original decorative art period. Working content of abstract, landscapes, seascapes and floral. From here he plans to refine the style that he has created by adding more definition and detail. The path is open for his art work to go in many directions such as abstract expressionism, art deco, abstract, surreal and realism.
His efforts have been well rewarded with over 1200 of his original abstract art being bought. Almost 30% of his art has been picked up by returning clients that have become collectors of Theo's unique style.
