Born in Hornell, NY but raised in Buffalo, Radoccia received a BS in Design from Buffalo State College and a MFA in Painting from University at Buffalo. His work has been exhibited at Hallwalls, the Burchfield-Penney Art Center, and the Albright Knox Art Gallery. Since the mid-eighties, Radoccia has been based in Brooklyn, New York, where his paintings and sculptures began addressing urgent social issues, such as Apartheid and AIDS. He began working with grass roots and national organizations, and exhibited and curated nationally, as part of the "Art Against Apartheid" Movement.

His work was also included in the traveling exhibition entitled "In the Face of AIDS," which included artists Susan Coe and Robert Flint. After a one-year painting sabbatical in Florence and Venice, Italy his work moved to subjects more sensual and religious. This body of work resulted in exhibitions in Brooklyn, Provincetown, Atlanta and New Orleans, as well as gallery representation in New York. Since 2001, Radoccia has divided his time between a permanent studio in Brooklyn, New York and one in Antananarivo, Madagascar.
