A native of Dallas, Texas, Reginato grew up in Oakland, California. He studied at San Francisco Art Institute, California, 1963-1966 and later taught sculpture at Hunter College, New York, 1971-1973. The artist has an extensive exhibition record in group and one-person exhibitions in major museums and galleries nationwide.

Reginato's sculpture from the mid 1960s were painted wood or fiberglass structures. After learning welding skills on his own in 1970, the artist began working with welded steel as an artistic medium. Painted, geometric and organic shapes, along with fluid lines of steel, combine in Reginato's balanced, yet animated compositions.
