Peter Valentino is a fine artist and designer with 35 years of experience. American born, self-taught at a very early age, with a remarkable ability to work with metal, wood, and glass, he has created a majestic portfolio of work turning aerospace materials, objects, artifacts and composing sculptures and installations that become spectacular works of art.
Mr. Valentino’s pieces for Flight Studio are inspired by his passion for aviation, aerospace and theme of flight. His fascination for flight and airplanes began when he was 15, or even a younger age. His first piece, an inspired yet elegant intricately detailed aircraft, created completely of wire, was completed when he was only 16. The seed of fine art and fine sculptural functional design was planted. At 19 years old, art and flight merged and Peter became a pilot. He received his pilot’s license and it was at this point in time that the intersection of his love of flight and his artistic talents were fused formally in an equation that has lasted a lifetime and promises to be latent in his work for decades and even generations to come. Mr. Valentino has since created aerospace works growing in importance and with museum and archival quality. Flight Studio curators have spoken highly about his masterful replicas of aviation-themed pieces as collectible artifacts, appreciating contemporary works d’art, elegant gifts and inspiring illustrations of what is possible when flight meets art and design at its finest.
Peter’s imagination as his guiding light has connected with collectors, investors and galleries worldwide. Over time, carefully selected airplane parts, acquired through an inspired and flight enlightened process, oftentimes reflecting on his extensive flight relationship as a pilot, as the critical raw materials by which to create the final master pieces.
