Anthony Ruscitto, born 1985, is a self taught artist living in Schenectady, NY. His interest in art really started to develop in 7th grade when he was assigned a project on pop artist Claes Oldenburg. From there Ruscitto was exposed to graffiti and street art through the lock punk music scene.
Ruscitto works with many different materials to create his pieces. He is a process based artist, and his works are the result of experimentation. He is still heavily influenced by his early love of pop and street art.
