Niccolo Cataldi was born in San Pedro de Macoris, Dominican Republic in 1952. Educated there and in the United States, he now resides in New York City. Cataldi is a sculptor and painter. Currently Cataldi’s work, primarily sculpture, is influenced as much by native cultures and vernacular myth as by classical European tradition. His most recent body of work seamlessly fuses these elements, integrating influences of his various ancestries (African, Caribbean, European).
