Charles Arnoldi is an American abstract painter, sculptor, and printmaker. A versatile, ever evolving artist, known for working with non-traditional materials. During his early career, he was known for his stick paintings where, instead of working on traditional canvas, he utilized actual tree branches as a vehicle to draw lines through space. He employed shadow, depth, and color to create powerful and expressionistic compositions. In 1969, he was awarded the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Young Talent Award. He was invited to participate in Document V in Kassel, Germany in 1972 and went on to receive two NEA Artist Fellowships, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a Maestro Grant from the California Arts Council. 

His work is in the collections of many major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, The National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C., the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, The Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, The Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, California.
