Donald Tiscareno

 June 2018

Donald Tiscareno was born in Los Angeles and discovered his love of art at the early age of five and has been painting ever since. After attending Los Angeles city schools throughout his life, he received a Master’s Degree in Art from California State University, Long Beach. His resume boasts both an illustrious 40 year career as an interior designer, between 1970 and 2010, and many years of experience teaching art at high school, junior college and university levels.

As a painter his focus is on lush oil paintings of landscapes and flora indigenous to the Southwestern US with an emphasis on cacti and succulents, and mixed media abstracts which combine oils, acrylics and other techniques including paper cutting and collage. His exhibition record includes multiple group exhibitions and in excess of five one man shows in recent years.

As prolific as he is proficient, his ever expanding body of work offers a dazzling and diverse exploration of color, form and texture.  He exhibits his paintings regularly at The Long Beach Playhouse and with Long Beach Creative Group.

Donald will be doing a solo exhibit starting September 8th through November 30th at the reopening of the Center Gallery in Long Beach, he will be unveiling his new series “The Newly Moderne” inspired by the “vibe” and art he saw in Paris in the 1960’s.


Donald Tiscareno’s work can be found in many private collections.
