The first and most memorable artist I had the pleasure of meeting that night was Frank Caracciolo.
We made small talk and it was at that time that he shared some words of wisdom which go against what many photographers and artists have told me in the past. His exact words escape my memory but his message remains embedded in my head.
Rather then move on, he advised me to move forward.
Stick with it. Keep creating art.
Believe in yourself and your artistic abilities and good things will come.
Caracciolo's work is unique because he turns his beautiful oil paintings into wearable women's clothes. His designs are colorful and most definitely wearable.
