2006 Harlem Studio

Demand was increasing, so in 2006 Caprell expanded his studio to a more spacious location at an old warehouse turned artist-commune in Spanish Harlem. A far cry from the yuppie business rush of Midtown, this studio on 118th Street had an authenticity that gave Caprell's work a unique chance to bloom amongst the other emerging artists who had migrated to the area. His Innoscents, Sin and Blossom series were created here, revealing a greater appetite for taking risks. He was published for the first time in DirectArt Magazine's annual tribute to promising artists. Contrary to the introspective and often anti-social artist stereotype, Caprell established himself as a gregarious and caring craftsman, willing to share of himself with anyone interested in his work.
