Filippo Ioco was born in 1968 in Leuggern, Switzerland to Italian-born Giuseppe Ioco and Francesca Casarubia. In 1971 the Ioco family moved to the U.S. and established their home in Detroit, Michigan. Unable to speak or learn English for several years, Ioco learned from a young age to rely on art as a form of expression. Quickly, this ability transformed, shaped by the many influences Ioco encountered on his path toward the field of body painting.There are SO many fascinating images on Ioco's gallery... please take an opportunity to puruse them and enjoy this engaging artist's work.
Like the sunlight in which he loves to work, Filippo Ioco is bright with energy and sensitive to that which is dark in our world. The frustration of silence for so many years has been replaced. It has been replaced by a gift that has been nurtured and fed and now nurtured and feeds all who see it. His ever-increasing scope of subjects and broad range of abilities have given to Ioco the tools for greatness, and this is Ioco's time. As he continues to sculpt ideas, chiseling them with detail and dousing them with color, Filippo Ioco proves himself an asset to the art world of our time and of that to come.
