We have the ability to achieve anything we want in life – We Just Have To Follow Our Heart. This piece is a definition of that. When you Follow Your Heart, incredible things do happen.
Anthony Ricciardi’s art is distinctive, vivid and curated to tell a story.
The Toronto-born artist and entrepreneur made his debut in 2015 at age 24 after being featured in a Forbes article on contemporary studio spaces. Since then, he has introduced audiences to imagery and explosions of colour orchestrated in uncommon forms. His art has no limits and encompasses canvas paintings, full-scale murals, furniture installations and art fashion.
Ricciardi graduated from Alabama State University (NCAA Division 1 baseball scholarship) with a degree in Finance. After three years working in Toronto for an investment fund, he chose to follow his heart and pursue art full time.
His work has been featured around the world, most recently in New York, Brazil, Rome and London. Ricciardi creates pieces for various spaces and clients that lead to vibrant, enjoyable and memorable experiences through art.
