Tony Picano who in fact his real name is Tony Picanco had to change his name 5 times from 2005 about once a year as some pro-active Business enemy would report systematically to facebook that something was wrong in his events, whatever word he would use that may have sounded bad.

His name had to be Tony Picanco, Tony Pianco, Tony Picanto, Tony Picaso and finally Tony Picano which is the only time and reason why he didn't have the choice but to provide a different name.

Someone has been at his throat for 15 years non stop, everyday and now we know it was the woman that has been running the Main Life model agency in London for the last 20 years, at least. The more she created against him the more she could convince people on how bad Tony is. She has now so much material that this situation could simply get out of control easily at anytime.

First let's see what she has used for all those 15 years as leverage and why originally.

Tony in 2003 did what no one would bother or dare do at that time. He decided to change everything so that classes had a chance to survive the Digital age that came in force before and especially after the millenium. Let's make a good prediction and smartly presume what would have happened if he didn't...

Big unis and Art schools were having trouble with Arts Council funding and could not afford their existing Art teachers and Life models so Life models often didn't have the choice but to sign a 10 weeks contracts with really bad clauses if they were to not turn up to a class even for health reason. They were paid £3 to £3.50/h and classes were 2 hours/ modeling was paid for 2 hours even if the class was 2.5 hours. Unfortunately this practice still exist nowadays with very busy, successful classes in London. This was told to whoever wanted to hear at the time so not a secret at all.

 

In time of austerity Art classes that were in trouble and who disappeared from 2003 to 2005, had to play the Austere game to make sure they'd get the best possible reputation and the maximum chances to prevail. It was simply really hard to bear the weight of this austerity. A truly popular class even at that time was very chilled, no rules were needed, no tuition was needed or only to those who needed when those who were scared to disappear were made unbearable with a newly invented Curriculum for Art teachers at Adult education Community classes that literally millions used for 1/2 a century. How was one of those austere classes?

You had to book and pay in advance only, you had to pay quite a bit for Art materials, you could only be 2 mins early and 5 mins late, you could not ask anything to the Art teacher that would improve anything or could end up in trouble, chatting amongst students not allowed. The teacher would, at every single class, go from one artist to the next, without exception and she would repeat the same exact comment every 3 people and she would expect you to talk and approve her says, the models I saw which is only 2, both cried at least once, had to be given  a ten mins break and a cupatea, one would not shave with legs covered like a hairy man, one would never look in the Artists direction and hide her face... Those models were provided at that time by the same model agency, more like a tiny Collective of models at that time run by that same person who'd split good and bad jobs among other models as she was just a Life model and Yoga person then. So her friends and herself would get the good jobs and those who weren't her friends had to end up working for Schools, unis in the worse possible conditions. She also learned about the power of austerity and applied it for the next 10 years to give her, what became a business, thanks to Tony, the best possible chances.

She used to cycle most days from one good job to another and pay her bills that way until her World went up side down from 2004. Someone, not even British, started running classes everywhere, telling Life models that time had changed forever and that from now they'd get paid X3 with a break in the middle as he run 3 hours classes nearly from the begining, his name was Tony Picano. She was so annoyed as some of her models would from now never work for her ever again but with him for many many reasons. Her ways were Austere when his ways were the opposite, trying to change, improve everything on the class side, teaching side, model side, cost, venues, etc...

It simply became more and more difficult for her to find life models that would go to badly paid and run classes and ended up having to go herself and friends who simply hated it and obviously hated Tony Picano. She didn't have a choice but to increase the rate of all her models to £10/h to be able to find models for bad jobs. Schools and unis would somehow use the same tricks of 10 weeks contracts and by then only and mainly succesfull ones had survived so It was just about OK for them to pay probably about £8/h.

While this woman was busy trying to survive by getting her collective to survive, by little by little improving her website and services, so more and more work, Tony was busy running classes everywhere south, north, east, Central, West of London in Smoking pubs where models were posing in the cigarette smoke fog. All pubs were Free to use, classes could get longer, models paid more, classes brought to all areas of London, and so Tony did. He gave his classes to students to run, taking commission rarely and changed the life of hundreds offereing new ways to pay the bills...

Tony was keen to do all this work simply because he needed a massive project like the one he just finished which was a Grand Design project that took him 5 years on his own to save big pennies. See the link.

Tony was incredibly succesful because he advertised for it like mad, went leafletting for months, aproached businesses, TV production companies, Radios and ended up seen on TV quite regularly, before youtube, heard on Radio on BBC4, before digital radio, on the first Facebook advertising campaigns, discussed with the council about using Parks for classes for a few months until all councils in London open their doors to his classes and everyone/anyone after him from Yoga to Tae Kwendo etc...

We are now in 2005. Tony has now his little brand new kingdom with people running to join everyday. It was the place to be, join and enjoy the experience but not everything was possible. Tony soon felt a tension with English participants. That woman who had to run her agency now, better, harder was passing on the word to whoever she knew that hat amazing guy, Tony, was in fact a bad man who treats women like objects and speak about them like so. Well that is all she had then to work with as leverage that is exactly what she used against him on Facebook to have his accounts closed. Let me be a bit more precise... She would ask one of her friends models she gave jobs to for years to report anything on Facebook that felt a bit bad towards Women in general. Tony is not english and may have not used the right word once or twice here and there. For example he could have copied and pasted an even description from Meetup where they'd be more opened minded than FB. This might have said: Let's Draw our Lovely and curvy model Anna for example or Let's draw our Sexy Kitten Amelie, when her stage name was truly Sexy kitten for a Burlesque Performer. She would text one of her friends Life models and say, could you please rport this and say that it is depravation language against women in general and should not be permitted. Then they would say that they are the Life models he speaks about that way and that Facebook hasn't got the choice but to take down his materials and even his account. That was already really hard, nasty and she would never do it herself. 

In 2006 and from then she felt that she could find ways if she needed to and that she could easily take all the merit of this Life model revolution to herself by getting rid of Tony. 15 years later she is still trying everyday. Now he knows.

Tony was the first group ever on Meetup for Life Drawing and invited about 50K people to meetup throught all sorts of ways, started also the first group for Drawing buildings in London, gave it away and now is about 25k members. From 2006 Tony's role became to gave ideas to the mass about being able to make an income out of Art. That model agency by then had similar amount of models that Tony had in his books or about 2,000 models. They would find her by simply googling with similar rates and opportunities. Tony had model groups and soon created his own network in 2007 also to bring models in one place. He didn't even know then who was that menace, he didn't have a clue about it at all and only knew of a small model agency trying to do a good job, nothing more and definitely nothing negative about them at all.

Tony's World, dream was turning less good everyday now from 2008 as everyone was simply learning from his doings to start their own classes everywhere but he was fine with classes he had to refuse people so busy they were, the beginning of running regular Office classes where all was possible privately, and Hen do's, which also means, Stag dos.

Some Life models probably around 2007 started to run their own events for Hen groups and that woman saw the business opportunity there but had no Art or teaching skills whatsoever. The only way she could get well paid for such a service was to run a class somewhere and be seen as an Artist at least and so she did. She found the cheapest community Hall in London and in Islington and started running classes with huge chalenges. By then she had plenty of models to send to classes and hers and heard of something called Volunteer life models. Tony appeared on Tele once running a class for TV and a Magazine for Men's Fitness where the jornalist asked to volunteer as a life Model to experience the job. Here were born anything to do with people wanting to experience the same thing. So that woman tried a bit of that to help her Life Drawing classes where she would pose for quite often to help her business survive. This wasn't enough so she thought, had lots of cups of tea and finally came up with the idea of charging life models to work as no one was doing it. She used her Life model experience/knowledge from classes and decided to offer a bit of guidance, training to them in exchange for something pretty new at the time called a Yearly membership and realized that to she could even use their time modeling to train them enough to be able to do the job and she did. For the first time in the Blue planet history someone would dare exploit the poorest of all, the Life models. From then she had no choice but to improve her ways, her website and use the skills of anyone she knew, especially writing skills to keep beeing austere and succesful, the two going well together. By then she would start asking every model all materials she could use against an Art teacher called Tony that shouldn't be there as he treats Women like rubbish, which obviously was the opposite to reality. This was one step further in her fight to try to gain maximum reputation and now the glory of destroying the bad Man forever.

This is what happens when someone doesn't manage to destroy someone else and has the legal freedom to carry on trying until she succeeds. She learned to play with words and found other life models who's Art was more of the use of Words and so she never stopped swapping favours as she put herself in the position of being able to offer jobs to thousands which comes to the same as cash. She bought her success form the poorest by exploiting them in broad daylight using Feminism from about 2008 to gather more credibility and support. One day she simply decided that Feminism was the way forward that would guarantee her business success when feminism as we know is designed to save Women's lives.

In 2009 Tony had 12 groups on Meetup, 10K members in his own Social Network, was running too many classes, trying to give all he had, was trying to fill all the Artists demands from Tuition, Gesture, Anatomy, Burlesque, even Boudoir type of costumed classes because people asked him to. Until one day he finally decided to take the risk of running a Drawing, photo and Video session all about LOVE. That woman found out and without him know anything about it, she went on the quest to find out how he managed to organize such event. She read Meetup's terms and found out that what was not allowed on Meetup was Porn. Tony was trying to keep away from Acted Love using real couples for the depiction of real true Love. The model he found and who could have modeled with her BF, did split up days before the event and at the ended up posing with a stranger and didn't like the experience at all. The class was a complete success except for the Life model who complained to me and obviously to anyone who would want to hear it. This was the only fo those classes we ever did. It was simply too risky to organize.

Tony's enemy, he didn't even know he had, tried the worst she could possibly do and the worst she could do then was to start for the first time to gather emails, texts, from life models to help her goal and used this case materials as leverage. Wether she was legally allowed to do what she did, we'll simply never know as she used feminism and good Samaritan values to help her. How bad could she be then? Well she had a Life model, retired Lawyer to write to Meetup and scare them enough to have Tony, demoted completely on a cold blue morning without any warning, after years of success, after bringing masses to meetup. She finally had what she worked for for all those years, quietly. But what she didn't know is that Tony was expecting things to start going pear shape which is why he was by then running all his events on Both Meetup and his own Network build on Ning Platform.

She wasn't a Ning customer yet so she didn't really know how to make the most of her success and so she became their customer with her own classes. She would then massively exploit the situation, talk to as many as possible from Art teachers, to Art models, Artists etc...

From then she would try to find people, life models who could give him the last final blow by destroying his Network and they tried and tried, spammed, scammed until out of 10K members only about 8K were left. She would tell other Art teachers to be good to her as she was providing life models and try to talk about Tony in the worst possible way.

What she didn't realize is that Tony did work so hard, did so much good, and it was so obvious that she had to give up for a while until the next opportunity.

This reminds us of a TV series called Merlin, where Evil in dozens of Forms, nearly manages to take over and kill Merlin and The Prince Arthur, who became King Arthur who was simply a good guy who never stopped being that way, never giving up.

From 2009 that woman's job was to simply continue gossiping, and wait for any model to say anything a whiny bit bad about Tony and Life models aren't all angels at all especially if they knew her already.

From 2009 and 2014 Tony kept going running classes everywhere, and took the classes to where no one ever drew before, making them accessible and approachable by everyone.

He would use ways and platforms never used before for Life Drawing classes such as Floodlight and became crazy busy with Office and Hen classes with an outstanding venue on Bloomsbury Square in Central London. That woman was furious and not the only one to be. By then probably about 15 woman and 5 men employed to get rid of Tony were really really loosing patience and ready for anything...It could be 10 times more...as any favor done for her, meant getting jobs for classes...

And so they've waited, waited, gossiped and waited until a young Lesbian Life model who had a great time modeling at one of Tony's classes in Bethnal green said briefly without really thinking so much about it to another life model she knew then on Facebook, that an Art teacher make a funny but a bit weird comment to her about models wrestling together for a class. He heard it and had a second thought about it and asked her who was that teacher and it was Tony who made a joke, after a great successful class at a comedy club, where artists stay for all night giggle and community life.

This Man who knew Tony and had been disappointed a few years earlier because he was running a one man show at the Hackney Empire, naked on stage and hoped for more of Tony's help. He ended up hating a few people who could have made him into a Star. Tony was one of them. So he felt that this bad woman could appreciate such information and so he did pass on the info. He was and still is a life model because of his Winston Churchill looks who was then running one of the first Life model Facebook groups with about 400 members and guess what he did. With that bad woman's approval he told 400 life models and Artists that Tony is a sexual predator and did sexual harassment on this young female Life model which was as far from the truth as you could ever possibly imagine. So this was the next episode for that woman simply not giving up. As the words "Sexual Harassment" sounded like the end of Tony and that would be it, she and a good friend of her, also Life model and very good writer, A Doctor in Fact, both went to the Police station, touching wood, crossing fingers, praying whatever that Tony would finally get down his Throne. The Police interviewed him and heard what you are reading now. Apologetically they said that they'd be with him in thoughts and in any way is possible to them (Limited). They are still with him mainly in thoughts and messages...

We are now on the 14th of December 2014, when Tony still didn't know about that woman forever enemy who went to the Police. He is on that man's Private group page, asking all the accusers of anything to come forward and explain. By now thousands of people were also waiting until the man moderating the group who hated him so much for not helping him become a Star, after 2 days of waiting and no one coming to speak, took Tony out of the group and said that he used bad words such as Sex included in what he was faulsely accused of "Sexual Harrassment". How much more of being acriminals could those two be. They simply reached the peak of what injustice can be afflicted to anyone, good or bad in our Facebook Society and that evil woman's World. Those people have succeeded for twenty or more years, is that right?

About a year before this happened, tony was running so many classes, for so long, in all sorts of places, carrying so much weight and equipment that he suffered fro Achilles Tendinitis, when your heel tendon(s) split because of all this excess, trying to only do good, treating his students and Models better than anyone before, he ended up having to choose between ignoring his injury, which was a bit hard walking with sticks or stop, get an operation and recover for a year. Guess what option he went for he went for 6 to 8 paracetamols, had a split toenail at the same time that did go to surgery a few years later and he just went on running his classes still all over in North, Central and East London... Now because he didn't have his foot operated he won't be able to get rid of this problem ever for Life...

In 2015 he was teaching around while some people would come to him, attack him verbally or online but as they say it was Business as usual by now.

That horrible woman simply had to find new ways and so she did using the talent of that other model who went to the Police with and asked her to write the worse possible blog that could be used forever, adapted, updated using any emails, texts that they've managed to grab, using illegal influence from any life model they could bully to cooperate. The material they found had to be exaggerated so that more models would provide more info and asked a few who had things to hide mainly to give it the best possible go at Lying which means exaggerating the truth and they did, so for some Tony was Amazing, An Art Dynamo, a Hero and now for some he was a Pervert, now became a Child molester, an exhibitionist and still it wasn't enough so this was the end of that episode...

The next one was to simply go straight to Tony's Business and talk to all his Staff members, Venues, Sponsors, TV companies he worked with, Groupon, Youtube, Airbnb, Cassart, etc... and have them scared so that they will invent an excuse and stop working with him, and so this went on for year and they would use that Blog they built with lots of Evil care.

When all was going fine but a bit slower in Tony's classes (2017) mainly because London had now more classes than anywhere else in the World put together so about 500 weekly, Tony received bad news from Homeland France about his Mother who was unwell and so he simply didn't have the choice but to stop his classes temporarily and went back home. He lost his Mother in Paris and weeks later his Sister in Marseille. It took him about a year to get over this and when he was about to start his classes again the virus happened.

Could it be a link between Coronavirus and that woman? I don't think so, but who knows... This is now the Coronavirus Episode with Tony catching the Virus, fighting it, beating it and Starting what he always wanted to do and did which was to Spread the classes globally. From running them south, west, north, East, Central London he can now run them In Arctic, Antarctic, Equator, Tropics nations and this is what he is up to.

So what could she be up to next?

The next episode that we are at those days is her now talking to class organizers all around the World asking them to stay away from Tony as Life models, her life models are complaining about him and what he's done, said, wrote, etc... and guess what, not one word is true. That's a kind of magic, black magic, that will continue, with anyone unable to stop it. Tony has got plans he cannot talk about which could purify our creative World forever or start the first World Art War. She would be sitting in her own queen's chair, Tony in his own, a bit wonky, now chair...

She is now also reaching Instagram Life models while he is increasing Life models minimum wage for 2 hours classes to £20/h, he is starting free to Life models auditions, no charge to them whatsoever, new ways for Models, artist to make money, new ways to help Artists produce quality Art, etc....

Let's just see what Tony brings to our smiling World.

Please do not believe obviously anything you may have heard that gave you any doubt. Unfortunately the more good people bring the more evil they raise also, nothing has changed since or before Merlin and the King Arthur...

If you have any idea on how to get rid of the problem and want to discreetly help, let us know on our contact page. Find our about Tony's Art and Life on his Page here when finished...

Tony has now spent more than half his life in London only doing good improving his world, you can find out what else he has done and succeeded with trying to change his World for the better. One of the reasons is because he is a true Buddhist and believe in Causes and effects...
