A Conversation with Charles Arnoldi

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this interview has been postponed.  Please check back for updates!

Charles Arnoldi is an abstract painter, sculptor and printmaker. The artist’s boldly graphic and colorful aesthetic employs a wide range of abstract visual language, from hard-edged geometric compositions to fluid, lyrical linework. Arnoldi attended Ventura College for two years prior to attending Art Center in Los Angeles. The artist recalls the stifling classroom environment of the late 1960s where male students were required to wear ties. After only two weeks, he transferred to the Chouinard Art Institute where he remained for eight months before deciding to abandon his formal education. Arnoldi has been widely exhibited in the United States and abroad including the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao and The Museum of Modern Art in New York. Today, Arnoldi’s works can be found in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, among others.
