Born in New York on May 30, 1953, Ceravolo was introduced to drawing at an early age, but it was not until college that he first experimented with painting. For this reason, some critics have called him a post adolescent prodigy. His formal art education was completed with a degree from the State University of New York at Farmingdale. His excellence there warranted the University to ask him to teach an accredited course in Graphic Design and Painting just two years after he graduated.
After teaching he became art director for a New York producer of major concerts and shows. It was at that point Ceravolo met with many of the people that were to be his future collectors, such as Rod Stewart, Elton John and Monique Van Vooren to name a few. While art directing, he continued to paint and receive national recognition. For the past 12 years Ceravolo has devoted himself entirely to painting, and has won tile admiration of collectors and critics for the unique and visual excitement of his art. This year with the release of limited edition graphics, one of a kind drawings and paintings, hand painted ceramic vases and a line of one of a kind and limited edition jewelry, Ceravolo's collectors have a greater selection of work then ever before.
