Art type:

Los Angeles-based artist Louis Cannizzaro’s unabashedly emo paintings, poetry and books connect with people with any level of art background. Since he wasn’t formally trained in art, his renderings, which are mostly in acrylic, have an almost childlike, unsullied honesty. His work draws you in, inviting you to apply your own meanings to the simplistic or abstract depictions. It is this Rorschach inkblot quality that occasionally strikes a chord so compelling that the beholder commits their admiration to skin. His work has seen great commercial success, especially amongst celebrities. Cannizzaro has been featured in W magazine, Apparel News, and Women’s Wear Daily, and actress Kelly Lynch bought three of his silk-screen T-shirts when Aero & Co. held a gallery opening of his work.
