American artist Fred Tomaselli studied painting at California State University, Fullerton. He moved to New York in 1985. Combining materials such as prescription pills, herbal remedies and psychoactive plants, Tomaselli’s collaged paintings draw parallels between the mind-altering properties of these substances and the understanding of art as a window to another reality. Tomaselli has exhibited extensively in Europe and the US, including a solo exhibition at IMMA in 2005.View Artist
