About the Artist: Masana’s one-of-a-kind creations are inspired by the great Masters of Art through the ages such as Vermeer, Caravaggio and Rembrandt. Trained in the painting and illustrative arts several decades ago, some of his teachers harkened back to the original “Mad Men” days of artists whose works graced the covers of COLLIERS and HARPER’S MAGAZINE. It was an era of iconic illustration. He is a living link to that Golden Age of Artists. A published, award-winning photographer, today his artworks are in demand, seen in the finest homes and cherished by clients in virtually every continent in the world.
