Dennis Delomba is a Master of Fine Arts Graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design and an Outstanding Alumni Award recipient of Rhode Island College. He is an artist and veteran art educator, having taught ceramics, drawing, figure drawing and painting.

After a successful career in contemporary ceramics and glass, Dennis has focused on drawing and painting.
“Painting has become a place in which I analyze, relive and re-experience life events in both the most complex and primal languages. For me, painting is the ultimate challenge, the most comprehensive voice, and the most connective encounter of all the fragments and layers of the scattered self. Looking over human history, I can see nothing better than to be a powerful painter.”
“Technically I go back, endlessly striving to comprehend, to the early Flemish artists such as Van Eyck; to the Italian masters like Caravaggio, the Spanish tradition epitomized in Velasquez, and always Leonardo and Rembrandt for their monumental understanding of the human vision.”
Dennis is an Exhibiting Artist Member of the Providence Art Club, former artist-in-Residence at Firehouse 13 in Providence, Rhode Island and current guest artist at Imago Gallery in Warren Rhode Island.
