Nicholas D'Acquisto

Nicholas D'ACquisto graduated from the University of Tennessee at Martin in 2012 with a BFA in Graphic Design. He continued his education and received an MFA in Studio Arts from The Memphis College of Art. Currently his focus is on teaching the foundations for Digital Media and understanding Semiotics, but he likes to bring a real-world atmosphere to the classroom. When he has free time, he is producing work for his 'NoBodies' Series, which captures subjects whose identity has been removed, forcing the viewer to project their own thoughts of who they think belongs in the image. This is constructed by seamlessly collaging several digital photographs together to make the portrait appear invisible, hence the series' name, 'NoBodies', because there is literally nobody in the image, and to the viewer, the subject of the photograph bears no identity.
