Babylon Village Arts Council Art by the Falls Featured Artist Stephen Mastrorocco
By his very nature, Stephen Mastrorocco is adventurous with an insatiable curiosity. Mr. Mastrorocco explores the world and its scientific and archeological mysteries with the spirit of a child. He has explored the pyramids in Egypt, sailed across the Nile, rode through the desert on a camel and ridden hot air balloons over Africa. He continually strives to communicate nature’s complex wonders in a beautiful way. He uses airplanes and helicopters as an artist would use a brush. From above, he captures the very essence of nature’s wonders.
