ABOUT THE ESCAPISM ARTIST

For as long as people have been making and enjoying music, art, and entertainment, other human beings have been warning against the dangers of “escapism.”

David Frangioni holds a different point of view. Giving people a healthy means of escape is his lifelong mission.

David's quest to provide the world with escape is realized through home and studio installations, where he creates wonderlands for clients like Aerosmith, the Rolling Stones, Ringo Starr, Ozzy Osbourne, Kiss, Shakira, Rascal Flatts, Sting and countless other celebrities and captains of industry. His books and keynote talks further the same mission by inspiring people to channel the power of escapism to create the lives they want. Same with All Access IDA: Inspire & Develop Artists, where he works with talented artists to give shape to their gifts and the Frangioni Foundation, where he gives back to the community.
