A dentist-turned-artist known as Nicolosi has painted artwork for big ballers like Eddie Murphy, Meryl Streep, and Presidential hopeful Barack Obama, and says the key to pleasing his celebrity clientele is making eye contact.
To make his art realistic and moving, Nicolosi uses a technique where he stares deeply into the eyes of the photo of the person hes painting so he can see whats in their hearts.
Nicolosi uses his artsy technique to paint a picture thats not only pretty, but can also heal people.
Says Nicolosi: I replenish their soul, mostly by being able to paint something in their expression that maybe they forgot was there, like from their childhood, before they had to hide who they are.
This is especially true for diva clients, who he says sense that he can see into them and are quickly disarmed.
Nicolosi laughs, They end up being my best clients!
Nicolosi is sharing his art by hosting a charity auction in Hollywood on September 22, with all proceeds benefiting The Princes Trust and the Hollywood Museum.
