Piece description from the artist
Along Christopher Street in the West Village, Manhattan there is no shortage of characters. Passing by a neighborhood hair salon, I snapped this photo of a woman having her hair cut. But it was only after I developed it that I saw Jesus. He just appeared to me … and her.
Since his time in Saudi Arabia as a child, Rick Onorato has always maintained a strong desire to travel; he flees the country at every opportunity, documenting his travels in a variety of photographic styles. As an artist, Rick is known for combining his creative eye with sarcastic wit and dark humor.
Educated at the London Film School and Parsons School of Design, Rick currently works as a graphic designer in New York City. In his spare time, he is a filmmaker and a darkly humored cartoonist with several published books on "Amazon":http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_nr_p_n_feature_browse-b_mrr_1?rh=n%3A283155%2Cp_27%3ARick+Onorato%2Cp_n_feature_browse-bin%3A618073011&bbn=283155&sort=relevancerank&ie=UTF8&qid=1332036828&rnid=618072011.
