Reviews

In review of his 1996 exhibition of portraits of Internet porn stars, Washington Post noted that his artwork manages to find a delicate balance between black charcoal and cream-color paper, resulting in a grainy, film-noir effect, making his subjects, traffickers in mass-consumption prurience, seem tough but vulnerable, like flowering plants in sexual wasteland. A more recent review of his 2017 solo show in Washington Post explains that his technique is classical, but he sometimes incorporates contemporary technology: embed video. Portrait of You features live feed of picture's viewer, and Cuban by Ancestry, but American by Grace of God chronicles his family history on video loop. In reviewing the same show, Washington City Paper noted that the solo show focused on a couple of his far-ranging artistic obsessions, as he calls them, from Frida Kahlo to Book of Genesis to Picts of Scotland. American Art critic Dr. Claudia Rousseau observes that Campello is a prolific artist who has had an interesting and compelling trajectory of work since the 1980s. Brickell Magazine describes him as a thought leader in the world of Arts on a global scale. In 2020, the Washington City Paper characterized him as a prominent figure in discussing artistic responses to the COVID-19 pandemic.
