Noé Badillo is an artist and scholar of art history. He has been a practicing artist for twenty years. His first work was in photography starting at fifteen in 1995. In 2003, he studied on scholarship in Rome, Italy, where he gained a respect, admiration and love for the Renaissance. Upon his return, he began an apprenticeship under the artist Osvaldo Romberg, where he learned classical painting by master copying, drafting, assemblage and art theory. Badillo's work has progressed through various periods or phases—as such the work on this site is organized by subsequent years, delineated by these changes in style, subject matter or technique. Badillo's work has been exhibited at the Latino Museum of Art, History and Culture, and at the Tucson Museum of Art. He is currently a PhD student in art history at Arizona State University. He lives with his wife Elizabeth and his two sons, Griffin and Elliot in the Phoenix area.
