Already at the casting stage I asked Ugo if his work was not too close in style to Keith Haring. With his immense charm and a healthy dose of self-confidence, he brushed aside that concern. When he produced for the challenge a work, admittedly well executed, which looked like a pastiche of Keith Haring, I had to ask him that same question again. I was not surprised to see that it was a concern for the judges as well. Ugo has a great way about him, and I am certain his charm will serve him well in whatever he will do going forward.
