Rod Zullo was born in 1965 in Bucks County, PA. When he was five, his grandmother, a painter, encouraged his parents to send him to private art lessons with a well-known Bucks County impressionist. A consummate student of art, he continually searches for his own truth and language. For 20 years, Rod travelled throughout the world as a fisherman guide, from blue marlin to brook trout. He also wrote magazine articles for leading sporting publications. His travel abroad exposed him to a variety of art styles, mediums, and messages. By studying past and present masters, he has explored sculpture as a metaphor of the human condition. With the guidance and mentoring of sculptor Floyd T. DeWitt, Rod has learned to see beyond the literal and narrative to create work that is contemplative and expressive yet conscious of traditional fundamentals. His goal is to see the abstract forms in nature and express this in sculpture by marrying the components of discipline and creativity to express a concept rather than an image. He is a Fellow of the National Sculpture Society.
