Charles Becker drew as a teenager, but it wasn't until he happened to see a painting by Italian still-life master, Roberto Lupetti, that he was inspired to consider art as a possible career. As a result of the experience, Becker sought out the master (who happened to live nearby) and, under Lupetti's tutelage, created a solid foundation upon which to develop his own unique style. In the past ten years, Becker has received both critical and popular acclaim. His work has been featured in Time, Sunstorm, Art & Antiques, Connoisseur, USA Today, Art News, U.S. Art, Advertising Age and many other publications. His paintings also have been featured in dozens of exhibitions throughout the U.S., as well as France, Japan, Sweden, and Hong Kong. Today, his works hang in many prestigious private and corporate collections.
