Sakura Spotlight Series: Concetta Antico, World-Renowned Painting Artist & Tetrachromat
We’re back with another Spotlight Series feature! Concetta Antcio is a color visonary and we’re so happy to have had a moment to sit down and interview her.
- Tell us a little bit about your business and what you do.
As the brand CONCETTA ANTICO I am venerated worldwide as “The Color Queen”. I am scientifically endorsed as the “Perfect Storm” for functioning Tetrachromacy, which means I can resolve 100 million more colors than others. This gift illuminates the truth of the world’s beauty through my hyper-colored oil on canvas masterpieces. My paintings are windows to colors only my eyes can perceive so others can see them too. I receive avid media attention making my work highly collectible. Over 1000 original works are held in public and private collections worldwide.
- What made you aspire to be an entrepreneur?
I like to have my own creative schedule – in varied locations. As a self starter and as an artist, which is inherently bohemian, being an entrepreneur is the perfect fit for me.
- What is the one thing you wish you had known before starting your own business?
That you marry your career – it is hard to juggle a self-made career and a family life. TIME is not your own.
- What are the aspects of your business that you enjoy the most?
The flexibility. The inventiveness of something NEW every day. The creation of beauty.
- What do you love doing in your free time to refuel and have fun?
I love being in nature, especially parks and flowers – I enjoy socializing with friends in bars and restaurants. I love to TRAVEL too!
