After serving an apprenticeship in all the arts, Bartalini combined their essences into one many-faceted form of artistic expression—one which has been acclaimed as enthusiastically for its entertainment value as for its artistic merit. JUST WHAT IS BARTALINI? As the critics tell us: The versatility of his art challenges ordinary cataloguing. He is at once the actor, singer, dancer, designer, painter, sculptor and quick-change artist.
