F Taylor Colantonio by Federico Torra
F TAYLOR COLANTONIO's first name is legally just the letter F, due to a clerical error on his birth certificate. Before opening his studio in 2016, he earned a Master of Fine Arts in Furniture Design from Rhode Island School of Design in 2013 and apprenticed with a master of papier-mâché in the very southern tip of Puglia, who is considered to be the best working today. In addition to his studio practice, where he produces works in polished cartapesta and other media, Colantonio manages his own line of collectible design objects and custom wallpapers, as well as a small portfolio of interiors. He is based in Rome.
