Marco Santaniello: Unrestrained Creativity & Sense of Style
NYC designer Marco Santaniello is one of the brightest new-comers in fashion and pop art. His work is a colorful canvas of t-shirts and t-skirts with new, startling pop graphics representing an unrestrained sense of style.
Marco is one of the few designers with the guts to fully express himself in a new generation of fashionable graphic pop art quickly gaining momentum across the world. In fact, Marco earned recognition from the New York Times, Examiner, and BusinessofFashion.com for his outrageous imagination. He created a blogger-fan network celebrating his work in Japan, China, Philippines, Indonesia, and Scandinavia with new blogs coming soon in Taiwan, Brazil, Russia and other places around the world. This is what NYC represents to artists — No Boundaries.
“If you really wanna change the world you must listen to everyone all over the world and in all languages.”
A fashion anarchist in many ways, Marco began covering Fashion Week internationally as a journalist for fashion websites and as a blogger for Max Mara. Writing about fashion made Marco realize just how uninspiring new fashion is, which compelled him to metamorphose from a fashion journalist to a fashion designer and patent his new fashion idea, the T-Skirt – practically an upside down t-shirt with an elastic waist and a coulisse for size customization.
As a relentless, ultra-social entrepreneur, Marco participated in numerous unauthorized fashion shows in major city squares across the world ( Rome, Milan, Copenhagen, Paris, Krakow) and he authorized events such as the Williamsburg Fashion Week End (Brooklyn). Marco took part in a collective show during the 2011 New York Vogue Fashion’s Night Out, Underline Gallery (Manhattan), Fiat 500 Contemporary Art Meeting (Milan and Turin), and the AH-UM Milan Jazz Festival. His biggest commission was for Pitti Immagine in Florence, and he was responsible for advertising the 2011 MODA PRIMA fashion fair. Upcoming shows include solo exhibitions in Tokyo and he’s creating a show in Manhattan this year.
Hot of the serigraphy press, Marco’s new limited edition t-shirt collection “Nice to Eat You” with tagline packaging “Marco Santaniello Tasty Clothing” is quite a luxury in a day when everything is commercial.
Marco is poised to collaborate as a graphic artist, as opposed to a graphic designer, with marketing companies and advertisers to create brand recognition. He is also available for personal pop portraits.
Marco wears two big panda eyes created with black makeup everyday in efforts to teach people not to judge by the cover. Marco is a nightlife icon, and if you are lucky, you will run into him at the Standard Hotel alongside the Hudson River in the meatpacking district.
