When Salvatore Federico was a little boy, his grandmother took him to the National Gallery, following her belief that everyone should have an education in the arts. A young painter was there, painstakingly copying a painting. She asked the boy what he was going to be when he grew up and when he responded “artist”, she gave him three of her brushes. Federico used those brushes throughout art school. Influenced also at an early age by classical music, Federico interprets the rhythm of pattern and repetition in his own works, making his shapes dance upon the canvas.
