Visual artist Marcello Pope, aka Rosie Lee, was born in 1978 in Fort Worth, Texas. He spent most of his personal and professional life in areas surrounding his hometown and went on to earn a B.B.A of Entrepreneurship and Strategic Management from the University of North Texas in 2001. With a deep rooted sense of responsibility as an artist, Pope made it a priority to educate and inspire others through his creative work and also through his professional careers, serving as an educator, planner, and advisor for many non-profit organizations such as Big Thought, Inc. where he completed a Teaching Artist Fellowship from 2012-2014. Pope is continually searching for inspiration in fashion, culture, music, art, and performance and he brings these inspirations to life with forward-thinking pieces like those among his “Dandy Fresh” series. Pope’s mantra is, “draw from inspiration, paint with purpose, faith is my canvas.”
