Our Speaker

Marco Santini is an award-winning NYC-based artist, fashion designer, photographer, and inventor who draws inspiration from inclusion, positivity, and language. 

In 2007, he received a Bachelor of Arts in Linguistic Anthropology at Brown University, where he was intrigued by the relationship between communication, expression, and imagery. Santini worked with NBC at two Olympics (2006 Winter Olympics in Torino, Italy & 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, China) and at branding agencies in NYC before fully committing to the arts. His geometric style is expressed across multiple mediums, including spray paint, paint markers, window markers, acrylics, magazines, textiles, and digital art.

Santini found his life’s purpose in 2018 to spread love and positivity as a Conscious Creator. He has expressed this through art, education, and volunteering. He speaks and paints at schools around the world, teaching students to explore their passions while turning negatives into positives.

Santini’s iconic One Love logo features the word love in 80+ languages hidden within his geometric motif. The logo is meant to signify that there is more that unites us than divides us as a human race and speaks to his great belief of Unity in Diversity, celebrating that we are all the same and all different, which is beautiful.

Santini’s work has been covered in the New York Times, Forbes, New York Post, Time Out New York, Chicago Tribune, and Maxim Magazine. His art has been featured at the United Nations General Assembly (2019), Art Basel Miami (2019, 2018 & 2017), Bloomingdale’s (2020 & 2019), Burning Man (2020 & 2019), SXSW (2019 & 2018), Hudson Yards (2019), Brooklyn Beer Garden (2020 & 2019), Shore Club Miami (2019), SLS Miami (2019), Underhill Walls (2018 & 2019), Montreal’s Mural Festival (2019) and many art galleries, among others.
