The inspiration behind Morico’s pop-art is a connection of how iconic images touch our lives. The nostalgia of his childhood has always fascinated him - how items we read, buy or eat, play the mood of our existence.
A simple glass of orange juice gives you a burst of energy, the sweetness of Twizzlers really makes mouths smile. These images of past icons show the behaviors and communications that relate to all of us. The compositions of Morico's work are layered with paper collages, (from old magazines) paint, spray paint and hand-written pencils to create depth and varying textures.
Many corporations have commissioned his work: CBS,TV network (executive of ces), JP Morgan and Yale New Haven Hospital. He has also done a variety of murals for companies and has numerous private collectors worldwide. Galleries from Boston to the U.K. exhibit his work.
