Caspe graduated with a MFA from New York’s School of Visual Arts in 2005 and from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2000. After graduating from New York’s School of Visual Arts, he began a career as a painter and held several exhibitions of his large-format photography, video, sculptures and other mixed-media work.
