George Gallo - Details


GEORGE GALLO spent most of his youth writing and painting, and studied with landscape painter George Cherepov. He
quickly realized that the arts of writing, painting and music were intertwined.
In 1982, Gallo moved to Los Angeles from Mamaroneck, New York, with several screenplays and less than $800 in his pocket. Four years later, his first script, "Wise Guys (1986)," was produced, and starred Danny DeVito. Gallo followed that with the now-classic "Midnight Run (1988)," with Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin. In 1990, he wrote and directed the critically acclaimed "29th Street," which starred Danny Aiello and Anthony LaPaglia. That same year, Gallo enjoyed his first one-man show as a landscape painter at New York's Grand Central Art Gallery. He went on to win the "Arts for the Parks Top 100" award and continued to be lauded at other shows throughout the
Northeast over the following months.
Gallo continues to paint, spending as much time as he can in New Mexico, painting the mountains of Taos Valley.
