JOSEPH NITTOLO

FOUNDER “THE SPACE BETWEEN”

Joseph “Joey” Nittolo was raised in the streets of Los Angeles, California in the 1970s. Growing up he engaged in the lifestyle of a street kid – dabbling in drugs, illegal activities, hustling and hanging with the wrong groups of people. His family was also a product of their environment, having a mother and father who was a PIMP and heroin addict. His world was a reflection of poverty and constantly living in a state of survival.

At the age of 25, Joey’s sense for something greater motivated him to focus on changing his life by way of financial success. He promised himself that he would lay a new foundation to remove his life from the streets and become a provider for his family in ways he never had growing up. He pursued multiple business leveraging the intuition he gained from the streets and began a successful career spanning real estate and film production. While shifting his attention to the pursuit of financial aspiration, Joey’s tunnel vision for success allowed an expansive career. He produced several motion pictures, including “A Man Apart”, starring Vin Deisel and Larenz Tate, and “Pool Hall Junkies”, starring Christopher Walkin and Chazz Palminteri. Joey got married, had four beautiful children and started the family he had always envisioned as a child.

In 2017 Joey went through a drastic change. He began experiencing things he couldn’t process. He started hearing voices from those who have transitioned, developed new clairvoyant abilities and began predicting events and happenings in his life. He received clear verbal messages with information about humanity, consciousness, the earth and more. Joey found it difficult to explain and communicate the rapid changes happening within himself. His family struggled to understand the sudden transformation and after a year of managing, they admitted him into a mental institution. Joey did not respond well to the systems and operations of being in 5150. He refused the medication and it was during this time Joey realized what was happening – that this was beyond a perceived ‘mental illness.’ This was something different. His family found it difficult to cope with the increasing intensity of his awakening leading to a separation from his wife and children.

As Joey knew he had to follow the calling, he sought the guidance of those who had walked the path before him. Kundalini Yoga found Joey and it proved to be the only effective channel for managing his powerful awakening. Joey headed East to India to seek more clarity and information about the awakening taking place. It was there that the inspiration behind The Space Between manifested.

Joey’s mission with The Space Between is to be a voice encouraging us to freely and openly embrace the many things that make us human, to understand ourselves in the non-linear space and celebrate who we are from the material to the spiritual. As someone who was dismissed as mentally ill and noticing the many awakenings taking place with some of our most popular and beloved artists, musicians, thought leaders and more, The Space Between serves as a bridge to expand the conversation of mental health, awareness, spirituality and create new definitions of how we exist in the world.

EDDIE DONALDSON

GUEST HOST

Louisville, Kentucky native Eddie Donaldson moved to Los Angeles in 1988 and became involved with the graffiti movement as an alternative to the turbulent gang activity of his generation. Immersed first as an artist amongst diverse L.A. crews like TCF, AWR, and The Seventh Letter, Donaldson had the vision to develop their homegrown graffiti movement into something beyond the streets. His loyalty and business sensibility transformed the graffiti scene and he evolved into the point person for producing art events and exhibitions that inspire and spread the stylistic of southern California art into the world.

In 1998 he successfully integrated L.A. artists RETNA and MEAR ONE with east coast newcomer Shepard Fairey for the historic 01 Gallery exhibit on Melrose. From the beginning, the pre-Banksy times, Donaldson worked with talented fine artists like RISK, ZEPHYR, HAZE, KET, SABER, REVOK, ZES, Ron English, Amanda Lynn, David Choe, and Sage Vaughn. In 2000, his groundbreaking website GuerrillaOne became the first online graffiti portal, uniting the growing subculture globally and changing the landscape for connection amongst artists, fans, and collectors.

By inspiring value in artists as influencers and activists, he has the unique ability to put together the right artists with the right projects to promote next level visual expression. Communicating through fine art online, in galleries, at events, and on the street, Donaldson inspires his culture to grow and shine all over the world.
