About us

Born in New York City, Mr. Gentile attended the New York School of Visual Arts where he studied Fine Arts, Graphic Design and Three Dimensional Design. After that
he went on to spend 2 years in Japan studying Martial arts and Sumie Painting.

During a brief visit to Bali, where he collaborated with talented Balinese craftsmen he saw the opportunity to create art by merging his contemporary sensibilities with the traditional Balinese craft of stone carving.

His paintings and sculptures have been widely exhibited and appear in collections worldwide. These works often serve as the basis for the carved stone murals featured here. These relief
carvings appear in private collections and public space with commissions coming from Japan, Nepal, France, Spain, Germany, Australia, Fiji, the United States, Indonesia and others
