Marcello Caruso was born and raised in South Africa. His father was Italian and his mother was South African, so needless to say growing up was a cultural adventure. In 2014 Marcello moved to Florence, Italy to commence his studies at the Florence Academy of the Fine Arts, where he majored in printmaking. Having been made aware of art’s ability to communicate indiscriminately across all age groups and cultures, Marcello passionately pursues it. He is currently working on his Masters degree in illustration and plans to pursue a career in teaching or practicing it.
