DS: How did you end-up being a 3D Pop Artist ?
Charles Fazzino: I don’t really do a job….I guess you could say, I am my job. I’ve been an artist all my life and I followed that path. First, showing my work in street fairs then going to the New York School of Visual Arts, and starting my own publishing company.
DS: Can you tell us more about your job?
Charles Fazzino: Again, I'm not sure what I do qualifies as a job. I live to be creative and to paint and to communicate with the world through my art. It’s my passion and what I love to do.
