I believe that art is a healing force in the world. My work is spirit driven. I honor this spirit by giving it voice - by bringing together diverse elements to create a sense of peace love harmony and balance.
"Biello draws upon his experiences … transforming them into vignettes that seem like updates of Federico Fellini."
- Philadelphia Inquirer
