VIRTUAL ROTATING ARTIST

Harry Anesta

Harry Anesta is an accomplished designer, graphic artist and illustrator. Although he was born in Brooklyn, Harry grew up in Kew Gardens, Queens and has been a resident of Wantagh for the past 23 years. 

Harry’s successful 40-year career has been focused primarily on graphic design for corporate clients. He has worked for many ad agencies, promotion agencies and public relations firms as both an employee and freelancer. Various titles held were designer, senior designer, art director and marketing director. His impressively wide array of clients includes pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Merck and Moderna as well as corporate clients such as Google, IBM, Visa, Procter & Gamble and others companies like the NFL, Geek Squad and Absolut Vodka.

One rewarding position was at Genigraphics Corporation which was a subsidiary of General Electric and a pioneer in the emergence of computer graphics. His greatest achievements during his 10-year tenure were attaining the title of Marketing Service Manager and being a major contributor to the clip art library that was included with Microsoft software. Proudly a few of his creations are still available in the current software! 

Harry’s love of art began with his earliest memories and continues to this day. Painting and drawing were always hobbies and activities for relaxation. He enjoys painting landscapes of beaches or other serene and peaceful surroundings usually inspired by his travels with his wife and son.

His weirdest artistic achievement was winning a contest at the age of 12 with a painting, called Elephant Poltergeist, which was selected for the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. He was unaware that Mr. Santullo, his 6th grade art teacher, had entered the piece in the contest. Sadly there is no photo of the painting or memory of what it looks like or any knowledge if it has ever been on display. Like Harry said, “Weird.”

His interesting pastimes include being a lifelong New York Giants fan with some very cool football memorabilia, enjoying the band YES and skillfully playing the guitar. For a few years he was Scoutmaster for Boy Scout Troop 656 in Wantagh. Now he LOVES to travel and has recent trips scheduled to Las Vegas and Paris. 

Harry has many acrylic paintings and colored pencil/marker drawings for sale - ranging from landscapes to children's fairy tale illustrations to sports portraits. Harry’s passion for landscape painting, the beach and flights of imagination are evident in every Room With a View creation which is his new concept of merging fine art with home decor in a unique and exciting way. Every Room With a View piece is a hand painted and signed original on canvas mounted on board and expertly framed in a rustic, vintage window.
