Leo Posillico Mixed Media Acrylic Painting Artist Advisor La Quinta Arts FestivalLeo Posillico is one of a handful of La Quinta Arts Festival core artists with a long-term history and investment in the event, making his contribution as an Artist Advisor invaluable on many levels.

A successful, award-winning artist for over 30 years from Santa Rosa, Calif., Leo Posillico’s work is widely recognizable through his signature brush stroke characters. He always works in series, whether it be 2D Mixed Media, Sculpture, or Acrylic Painting.


In his “Gallery” series, Leo expresses humorous and serious artworks that one would see in a gallery or museum. His “Word” series is inspired by a common saying or feeling, equaling a meaningful work of art.
