Artist statement as written in the book "Painting with Passion",
"I feel as artists, it's our responsibility to inspire humanity. We do this by giving homage and living in the splendor of life. If I could leave anything behind, it would be a statement about the beauty of the world".View Philip Salvato's Paintings
