Franco Lacosta was born in New York City and raised in Puerto Rico. He later returned to New York and attended Pratt Institute. In the course of his career in the arts, Franco has been photographer, painter, model and television personality and, most recently, a men’s fashion designer.
Franco’s various creative endeavors have been exhibited in the National Arts Club, Armory Show, Tribeca Art Festival (New York), Gallery Place des Vosges (Paris), Saatchi Art Gallery (London), among others. His work has been published in Italian Vogue, American Elle and Italian Marie Claire, WWD, New York, Russian Vogue and El Nuevo Dia, Puerto Rico.
Audiences and gallery visitors world-wide have seen and collected Franco’s still-life floral studies for many years. He is currently being exhibited at Pier 59 Galleries, New York City. His fresh, young approach to an aesthetic examination of floral detail has led to the beautiful images seen here on boutiqueART in Franco’s Collection.
