[quote]One of the best shows we’ve had and to have sold a piece, makes you a professional. Congratulations! ~ Lance Lappin[/quote]
Last week, Lance Lappin Salon was proud to host the first art show of thirteen-year-old painter and draftsman Rocco Candela-Michelus. A native New Yorker, Rocco’s drawing ability emerged when he was in kindergarten. When not jumping ocean waves, traveling to Italy or hanging out with his three pets (Lola, Pedro and Badu), Rocco works in pencil, charcoal, watercolor and acrylic. Inspired by Tim Burton and Pablo Picasso, he’s a recent graduate of Clinton Middle School for Artists and Writers. This fall, Rocco will continue his visual arts education at LaGuardia Arts High School.
