Color The World
(excerpt from Italian Walk of Fame program 2014)
When I surround myself with art, my perspective of life takes on a whole new dimension.
My dulled senses are awakened by the colorful strokes of imagination.
Joseph Capicotto introduced me to his visual humility and uncalculated charades of life the first time I walked into his unassuming studio in the city of Vaughan, a growing and vibrant community just north of Toronto.
I felt a sudden urge to find an instrument of any kind to serenade the amazing pieces that spoke to me while hanging on display.
Mixed media of exuberant motion filled the walls, all revealing a brief chronicle that once challenged the bristles of a virgin brush.
The poetry that is conveyed through the textured images on canvas is part of a process that progresses through the experience of sounds, mood and emotional tolerance.
Mr. Capicotto recognizes these crucial elements that challenge his mechanism to reach the final frontier of his creation when he describes his work in this way, 'The poetic substance of art is the end result of self fulfillment.'
The Italian Walk of Fame is proud and honored to have Joseph as part of their continued efforts to promote and bring talent to the forefront of society.
