Josefiná Cavaliná

Zabar Project Gallery



“My new persona, Josefiná Cavaliná, is my artistic name representing the entity who helped me create my oil paintings.”

A new focus, a new body of work, and a new name. New York artist Josefiná Cavaliná presents still life oil paintings featuring ceramics, fruits and vegetables.

Josefiná (aka Joseph Cavalieri) was chosen as a Studios’ AiR in 2012, and has returned to teach four glass classes. This is the inaugural exhibition of Josefiná’s paintings on canvas. A collection of serene and quiet images painted in his Little Italy studio in Manhattan.

“The subject matter in my paintings is close to my heart. I have worked in ceramics and my father owned a general store in Tarrytown, New York, which specialized in fruit and vegetables. I worked there as a teen.”
