Artist Bio

Valeri Larko is best known for her densely painted landscapes of the urban fringe, all of which she paints on location. She is attracted to the jumble of rusting industrial sites, aging infrastructure and funky waterways that populated the outskirts of America’s urban centers and the stories these places can tell.

Valeri Larko’s paintings have been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries in the US and Europe. Exhibitions include The Bronx Museum, NY, Bronx River Art Center, NY, Bronx Borough Presidents Art Gallery, The Morris Museum, Morristown, NJ, The Hunterdon Art Museum, Clinton, NJ, The New Jersey State Museum, Trenton, The College of New Rochelle, NY, Fleming Museum, Burlington, VT, Butler Institute of American Art, Youngstown, OH, Barbara Frigerio Gallery, Milan, Italy, The Katonah Museum of Art, NY, The Jersey City Museum, The National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC, Aljira, a center for contemporary Art, Newark NJ, Bruton Street Gallery, London, England.

In 2004, Ms Larko moved from her long-time residence in Northern New Jersey to New Rochelle, New York, and since then has been painting in the outer boroughs of New York City, primarily in The Bronx but also in Brooklyn and Queens.
