CHARLIE BALDUCCI AKA CHARLIE B
A Project To Be Proud Of...
Charles Balducci is proud to be a Staten Islander. Born in NYC, but raised on the Island Charles Balducci has been a pioneer in the arts and entertainment movement to establish Staten Island as a player in the arts and entertainment industry. In 2005, after a handful of high exposure gigs with Viacom, Fox, and ABC, Charles Balducci had a vision to create an arts space that would revolutionize the arts and entertainment industry, not only for Staten Island, for all NYC, and beyond. That vision was the NycArtsCypher. (Check out www.nycartscypher.com) At first the concept was just a production studio, but it quickly evolved into an amazing opportunity for young emerging talent to network in a creative environment. A space built by artists for artists. Charles Balducci invited artists from all areas of the world to come and paint wood panels that would be the floor and walls on the top level of the two level NycArtsCypher space. Participants had come from all the other boroughs, as well as Long Island, Texas, and even Paris! Upon completion of this “Plywood Event” it was evident that this location would be so much more than a simple production studio. A constant work in progress, Charles Balducci continued to allow the artistic community the opportunity to create the space, and the concept became clear. Known for its Graffiti Mural Program and Dont Be A Bully programs the organization stays a trend setter and Taste maker among grass roots and social movements.
Charles Balducci has brought this organization from a concept to a reality, standing 2 stories high and located at 12 Broad Street in Staten Island New York 10304, the NycArtsCypher is a unique landmark for arts and entertainment.

In 2014 NycArtsCypher welcomed OverSpray (OverSprayNYC.com) to the first floor as an Event Space that caters to the entire community with a backdrop of colorful and energetic art.
