Salvatore Principe’s steadfast dedication to enriching people’s lives through his deeply abounding, expressive, and affecting art is reflected in this special edition wine collection.
Salvatore was born in 1959 of Italian heritage and raised in Manhattan where the brutal collides with the beautiful. Salvatore found himself inspired by the juxtaposition and diversity. While influenced by the pop culture of the 70’s, Salvatore was inspired to paint hearts after his mother passed. To him, the heart is an extension of her unyielding support of him in his quest to be an artist. It goes hand in hand with his ideal of spreading love, goodwill and positive energy throughout the world.
Salvatore’s art reflects a depth of emotion blind to racial division or language barrier and has been influenced by the works of Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol, Robert Raucshenberg, Willem De Kooning and Jackson Pollack. His art is about the spirit of life, celebrated through human emotion. In kind, Salvatore is continually donating pieces for charitable auction raising in excess of $300,000 in the past 5 years alone.
Salvatore’s art is always current and influencing what’s chic and modern with many pieces having graced the walls of numerous New York City’s cultural institutions, including Saks Fifth Avenue, Bendel, Bergdorf Goodman and The Trump Towers. His pieces have also been exhibited in galleries and art events around the globe: nationally from Manhattan’s SoHo to Miami’s South Beach and overseas from Bulgaria to Japan. Owners of original works include Nicole Miller, Jennifer Capriati, Adam Sandler, Tony Bennett, Dr. Phil, Cameron Diaz, Donald Trump, Chris Evert, Gwen Stefani, Andy Roddick, Lisa Dekooning, Patti Labelle and the late Miles Davis.
