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.  
  1. 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.


  1. 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.


  1. 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.


  1. 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.


  1. 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!
