Nicola Carpinelli, is born and raised in Hollywood, Ca. His paintings as well as his music are vibrant reflections of himself, influenced by actual past and present events. For Neo beat painter Carpinelli, the brush is just one of the many vehicles for self expression.

Paintings representative of his perception of the world combined with bazaar materials make for very interesting interpretations. Carpinelli's paintings often incorporate the political graffiti that is prominent in Spain and Latin American countries. When asked to comment on his work he says "For me painting is love… Other emotions ups and downs and everything in between love and pain are the catalyst, love is the color and pain is the brush, The rest is synchronicity.
