About Aureleo Rosano – Mosaic and Sculptor Artist
Born May 29, 1939 in New Britain, Connecticut to Sicilian parents. Emphasis in schooling on sciences and mathematics. Self-taught in the visual arts. In 1960, left New England for the sunshine and new frontier of Tucson, Arizona where I now live. In Arizona, I worked as a dishwasher, house painter, copper miner, apartment owner-manager, and test engineering officer at Hughes Aircraft. I became a steamfitter in 1973 after completing 5-yr apprenticeship. In 1976, founded a control systems company, in competition with Johnson Control and Honeywell. Interest in mosaics and sculpture began in childhood and continues to the present.
