“I believe everyone needs a mirror to look into, to recognize themselves, to see their flaws and good qualities as they really are,” Campisi tells P&P. “To me, born and raised in Sicily, living in New York City since 2011, it’s more like a double mirror and the search for balance. ‘Double Mirror’ is the acknowledgement that my heart is divided between my art and real life, between Europe and America. It reflects my dual nature, strong and weak, determined and lazy, passionate and afraid.”
