Emmanuel Viviano had very little formal training. He developed his skills while he was an assistant to Chicago artist Edgar Miller, who created reliefs and sculptural groups for the city’s art deco buildings. Viviano experimented with combining different materials in his art, often incorporating found objects. He spent his later years in Woodstock, New York, living in a cabin at the Byrdcliffe Arts and Crafts Colony, where the surrounding woodlands influenced the content and style of his sculpture.
