Like many before him, artist Anthony Ricciardi left the comfort of the corporate finance world to chase his passion and dream of becoming an artist. Based in Toronto, Ricciardi is a self-taught artist whose work is inspired by his own life experience and pop culture. His colorful compositions are heavily layered mixing a variety of forms and media including collage and graffiti.

In a recent interview with Applied Arts Magazine, he shared a piece of advice:

“Start! ‘Dream Bigger’ is my motto and as I mentioned in my creative process, I believe in constant work and executing daily. We never know what we are capable of achieving or creating if we don’t aim high and continuously work to achieve it. Nothing big ever came easy. Planning, sacrificing and never letting fear or what others think to get in your way is key.”

You can find his work in stores in Toronto, New York, London, and Los Angeles as well as in private residences and public spaces. What’s next? Brand collaborations. Be on the lookout by following him on Instagram.
