Meet Un Caso
Prolific Independent Artist
Un Casso is a multi-talented contemporary artist specializing in independent public art. Born in Port-au-Prince, he moved to the USA at the age of nine, and later established himself as an artist under the name UncuttART. Some of his first projects included designing customized clothing for industry celebrities including the likes of Wycleff Jean, Joe, Nelly, Sean Paul and others. His work has been featured in television segments, including on MTV, BET, ABC and in magazines including Source Magazine. He also developed a line of sneakers that were distributed to over 300 retail outlets. Although he is primarily a self-taught artist, he holds a degree in Media Art from Westbury College. Over the years he has developed what can truly be called a unique, abstract artistic style, which finds its inspiration from life itself; one that takes what he describes as “strange little pieces” and fuse them together to form a greater image.
UncuttART is also the god father of the Protect Yo HeART Movement – which started as a visual expression reminding people to do just that – protect your heart. It has since transformed into a way of life and an event celebrated annually on April 23rd, after taking the internet by storm. Madonna, Jennifer Lopez, Paris Hilton, Miranda Lambert, among others, have contributed to its growing popularity – even taking photos standing by his work. He has done collaborations with the late Andy Warhol and the Warhol Museum for an album cover for the super pop group #3rdEyeBlind. Among the noteable achievements, Un was selected to be part of the cast of the hit Netflix show “She’s Gotta Have It” – season 2, directed by Spike Lee. He was also selected to create art for the World Trade Center Arts Project and is currently in the process of creating a mini art tour / documentary called the “LoveIS” tour.
