S. Valente is a first generation Italian/American architect and artist from Medford, Massachusetts. He studied architecture at Northeastern University and at the American Institute for Roman Culture in Rome, Italy.
In both his residential and commercial  architecture projects, he creates designs with sensitivity to local vernacular yet with contemporary appeal. Similar to his architectural work, many of his paintings focus on capturing a sense of place, and a blending from figurative to abstract. He has exhibited his work in Boston and also recently completed an artist residency in Barcelona, Spain.
