Bruce Cascia received his BFA from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. He paints in a photo-realistci style, oils mostly, and occasionally acrylics. His images are of soliatry diners, truckstops, and motorcycles all placed in dramatic vistas of the American Southwest. They call to mind the romance of vast open spaces and the freedom of the open road. Cascia's work is included in numerous corporate art collections such as Oscar-Mayer, DDB Needham Worldwide, and the Benka Corporation, as well as the private collections of Jay Leno, Peter Fonda, and Dennis Hopper. About Bruce's series of "Dog 'N Truck" paintings he says: "I find them really refreshing, each with their own personality and sense of humor."
