Vincent Francis Castellanet grew up in Chicago, where he studied at The Art Institute of Chicago, and The Academy of Fine Art. He also attended Quincy College, and studied under Father Thomas Brown, a recognized Midwest impressionist. Painting is an integral part of the Castellanet family. Vincent inherited the talent from his uncle, Mark Castellanet, a well known Chicago artist who in the 1920s and 1930s, won many coveted art awards. After retirement from the Gillette Company, his painting career became a full time occupation. Today Vincent’s work is shown in many of Boston’s most prestigious fine art galleries, and is very successfully selling privately to a high profile clientele, as well as many fortune 500 companies.
