Jos Biviano is a nationally recognized visual artist living in Richmond, Virginia. He is the recent recipient of the Holbein Award For Excellence; the highest honor awarded by the International Society Of Acrylic Painters.

Jos's paintings glorify Nature and evoke the transcendental images celebrated by the nineteenth-century Hudson River and Luminist Schools of Art. His landscape paintings are marked by forceful and dramatic displays of light & shadow, intense color and atmospheric effects. Jos's compositions push the viewer for an emotional response.

Jos exhibits nationally. Recently, he was selected to participate in a Works On Paper show at the Waterworks Museum Of Art, Miles City, Montana. His selections came from a larger collection of 40 pieces created while Jos was at the Tucson Desert Museum, Arizona. These same 40 works were part of a study based on the photography of Ansel Adams and the national park system. Jos is currently painting landscape vignettes described in Robert Falcon Scott's 1910-1913 Journals – Terra Nova Expedition.

Jos's works are in the permanent collections of private, public, and corporate holdings throughout the United States. His diverse commissioned work ranges from South Africa Petrol Corp to the rock group Jethro Tull. Jos is published widely through F&W Publications, Art News, Saatchi-Europe, and The University of California Press.
