Kevin Berlin - Internationally renowned artist Kevin Berlin's works are found in the collections of Kim Basinger, Luciano Pavarotti, Buzz Aldrin, Henry Buhl, David Letterman, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Quincy Jones, General Motors Corp. and Carnival Cruise Lines. Berlin, a Yale Alumnus, has appeared in The New York Times Magazine, The Miami Herald, USA Today, and CBS Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood, MTV, Tokyo Television, and BBC Radio. Berlin was honored by President Reagan at The White House as a YoungArts Presidential Scholar in 1983.
Giovanni Rossi - Most famous for his paintings of "pomodori" (tomatoes), Rossi is now a ubiquitous figure at the international Art Fairs, giving new meaning to the concept that Artists are the "Rock Stars" of the 21st century. Rossi achieved success in the European adult film industry before turning his attention to painting full time. Rossi's studio is based in Florence, Italy. This is Rossi's second exhibition in North America and his first at RVS Fine Art.
Boris Ivanovich Petrov - Best known as an international business man and consortium builder, Petrov has been painting since he was a small child in his native St. Petersburg, Russia. Despite his name appearing in the media in the late 1990s for being associated with a scandal involving military helicopters in Novosibersk, Petrov has found recent success in oil, diamonds and “renewable energy sources." Petrov's highly emotional figurative paintings reflect his love for vodka and the Russian language.
