Zachary Delacruz grew up in Rumson New Jersey, his education was just across the river, in New York City at The School Of Visual Arts. His artwork typically consists of oil painting but on occasion, he will work with photography and sculpture. With much influence from artists like Frank Auerbach and De Kooning, Delacruz applies paint in a thick, abstract manner, these prominent brushstrokes come together to form scenes of cities, portraits, and everyday life.
