The Italian Artist Ylenia Mino Donates Paintings to Build 1000 Homes after Hurricane Sandy

The Italian Artist Ylenia Mino Donates Paintings to “Build 1,000 Homes” after Hurricane Sandy:

Art and Fundraising in Staten Island to “Build 1,000 Homes”

Ylenia Mino is a talented Italian painter living in Manhattan. She creates vibrant oil paintings on canvas using bright and joyful colors. Her desirable art is well known around the world and her paintings have reached the homes of multiple illustrious Italian officials and prestigious private Italian and American collectors.

This experienced artist Ylenia Mino  supported the fundraiser, “Build 1,000 Homes” on Saturday, May 31st, 2014, from 5 PM to 10 PM at New Dorp High School in Staten Island, NY located at 465 New Dorp Lane, Staten Island, NY 10306.

“Build 1,000 Homes” is a project born to help build the houses of the families who lost their homes during hurricane Sandy. There are 30,000 residents of NY and NJ who are still displaced by Hurricane Sandy as of today and the Build 1000 Homes team has decided to step in where other funds weren’t enough.

On October 29-30th, 2012, Hurricane Sandy pummeled the east coast with 15 foot waves and 100 mph winds. Hundreds died locally and tens of thousands were left homeless. Many of those also lost their jobs as their place of business was similarly wiped out.

Destruction after Sandy

A few days after the storm, when the “Build 1,000 Homes” team arrived, it felt like being in a war zone in a third-world country. The neighborhoods didn’t look anything close to a livable N.Y. City neighborhood. The Build 1,000 Homes organization has contributed over 2 million dollars in demolition, rebuilding, tools, clothing, aide, and fundraising.

Unfortunately, even though these contributions have helped, many families continue to be “homeless” as their homes are not safe to return to.  Most have already burned through their insurance money and savings for mere survival.

The Saturday fundraiser program was rich in entertainment, featuring the Italian painter Ylenia Mino, a stage hypnotist, several music bands, and two young talented singers, as well as celebrities and International speakers who helped raise funds.

The fundraiser has been a milestone for the success of this project and the paintings of Ylenia Mino has been a fundamental support along with the donations of other sponsors.

We thank her and the other parties involved for helping build back the community with the sale and appreciate of fine art.

To meet Ylenia and/or other community minded artists to discuss how art fundraising for your next project, contact us here at Manhattan Art Auctions.

Manhattan Art Auctions

Italian Bronze and Gold Master Sculptor from Venice

Gianfranco Meggiato’s works seen here at the 2012 NY Art Expo

Never before seen, original, introspective, instructive sculptures created by Italian metal master Gianfranco Meggiato.  From the heart of Venice, his artwork is breathtaking because of the deep level of communication and recognition experienced by the viewer.  Each piece is interactive, not only because of the movement and initial kinetic energy required.  The true interaction is once the viewer experiences the piece by touching it, moving it, and finally seeing themselves in the moving artwork itself.  Each reflection and experience is personal and unique.  The lessons of self exploration are keenly inherent with the artistic design defined my the master.  Engage the art first hand at Manhattan Art Auctions.

For more information:

Artist Statement, Artist Bio, Artist Publications and more, please visit Gianfranco Meggiato’s page here at Manhattan Art Auctions.  For a list of original works of art for auction houses, collectors, gallery owners and art lovers, please contact us directly here.  An approved representative will respond quickly with a private list of artwork and prices.  Each piece is priced equally world wide and every work of art is an original.  The pieces are each an original creation by the artist.  Gianfranco Meggiato’s works will be on display at auction houses and galleries in New York City during the summer and fall of 2012.

Manhattan Art Auctions


Joshua Oliveira

Art Battles Winner 2012

Josh Oliveira, American psychedelic performance art therapist, cut from the salt of the east coast underground, solidified his position as a streetwise, righteous artist when he was crowned the Art Battles’ Champion during one of 2012 first Art Battles at their first International Public Exhibit in The West Village of New York City.  Josh has served as a religious gorilla artist, performing in public with well known music groups where his work has been purchased by international luxury owners, art critics and lovers of the line between points.  Joshua’s diversity encompasses two distinctly different styles.   Seen below, an urban example of passionate energy and engaging color balance including complex layering and thought provoking forms.  Josh Oliveira is a multitalented artist, obviously comfortable producing a unique collection thought provoking, original compositions.

Magnificent art pieces offered at well below their value

New York, NY – May 25th, 2011 – Carmen Herrera, whom The New York Times has referred to as “a nonagenarian homebound painter with arthritis, [who] is hot,” and whose work is in the world’s most prestigious museums, such as the MOMA, is one of the Cuban artists who, at 7:30 pm on June 3rd, will be part of the auction organized by the Cuban Cultural Center of NY (CCCNY) and Manhattan Art Auctions.

Besides Carmen Herrera’s oeuvre, the auction will include approximately 25 paintings and photographs by renowned and highly coveted Cuban artists, as well as from new emerging painters whose art is just starting to be recognized. The eclectic selection brings together artists with different characteristics and from different generations, including Gustavo Acosta, José Acosta, Susan Bank, Guido Betancourt, Humberto Calzada, Chary Castro-Marín, Luis Cruz Azaceta, Enrique Cubillas, Arturo Cuenca, Liliam Cuenca, Ofill Echevarría, Nelson Franco, Florencio Gelabert, David Martínez, Manuel Pardo, Jesús Rivera, Baruj Salinas, Leandro Soto, Mario Torroella, Gladys Triana, and Raúl Villarreal.

The auction will take place on Friday June 3rd at 7:30 pm at the The Spanish Benevolent Society (239 West 14th Street, NYC), an emblematic historical institution founded in 1868. As Manuel Castedo, president of the CCCNY, states, “this is a unique opportunity for all art collectors. Since this event is organized as a fund raiser,* the starting bids will be well below the value of these pieces. Moreover, the $50 entrance fee is tax-deductible and will be applied to any art purchase.”

All attendees will enjoy a rich selection of tapas prepared by international chef Lupe Torres, from the Spanish restaurant La Nacional, as well as the right to participate in special raffles. Given the limited space and the anticipated response to this event, we suggest that interested art collectors buy their tickets early at For further information, please write to
