John Grillo, 1917 - 2014, painter, printmaker, sculptor and teacher, was born in Lawrence, Massachusetts in 1917. After receiving his diploma from the Hartford School of Fine Arts in 1938, Grillo continued his education at the California School of Fine Arts (1946-47), later studying with Hans Hoffman in New York and Provincetown. He taught at various schools, including Southern Illinois University, University of California at Berkeley, New School for Social Research, Iowa University, and Pratt Institute, before accepting the position of Professor of Fine Arts at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. His honors have included a Ford Foundation Grant for Work in Lithography followed by a Ford Foundation Appointment as Artist in Residence at the Butler Institute and two research grants from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Grillo has exhibited extensively and is well represented in numerous museum and corporate collections. John Grillo is regarded as one of the early architects of the Expressionist Movement. Grillo is collected by many museums around the world.
