Artsy on Escape Into Life: Carlito Dalceggio

28 Aug

As much travelling as Mr. Forager and I do, we have yet to venture outside the US.  But we have big plans to do so and I can. not. wait.!!  Recently Artsy Forager fave artist, M.A. Tateishi, journeyed to a dream destination of mine, Turkey ( read all about it on her blog here ).  While she was there, M.A. experienced the most amazing looking installation, Revolution Revelation, created by artists Arkin (Mercan Dede) and Carlito Dalceggio.  I was especially struck by the style of Dalceggio– so modern Byzantine meets urban graffiti!  So I’m featuring his work on my Artist Watch over on Escape Into Life today.  His works feel like an escape into the intricacies of Moorish architecture in a delightfully twisted way.  Nothing but love from this Artsy.

    Cool! I got to inspire you as you constantly inspire me! I’m not sure how I missed this post originally, but I was scrolling through your blog and thought, “Oh I love that painting!” And voila, it’s a full circle of inspiration. His work has so much energy and excitement, really great.
