He's known as the artist who "paints light," but the end result is achieved by integrating glow in the dark paint. While the normal versions of the paintings are sweet and soft, the glowing versions cast an eerie, mesmerizing brilliance.

Scorpiniti works with custom orders as well, so if there's an extraordinary idea that a customer has, he makes sure he takes dreams and puts them on canvas.

Believe it or not, before Scorpiniti dove head first into illuminating art, he had a lucrative career in real estate but decided to explore new artistic avenues instead.

Take Your Time

It would be easy to buy a Crisco Art painting and immediately shut the lights off in order to appreciate the hypnotizing radiance, but the best way to appreciate it is over time.
