Fumero and G

I’ve been a fan of artist Fumero’s work for longer than I had initially realized.  I’d seen his “Table Series Logo” all over the streets of Manhattan for well over a year before I knew the name of the artist.  In the world of street art, matching art and artists is not as easy as a Google search sometimes.  Several months ago, I happened upon one of his works in an exhibit and finally learned his name.  Of course at that moment, I decided that I must meet him.  As my great fortune would have it, I met Fumero at the launch of “Trespass,” an enclyopedia of Urban Art.  He was extremely cool, but like another favorite of mine, Elbow Toe, he asked if I would cover his face for this story.  The image over his face is his infamous “Table Series Logo.”  During our brief chat, he told me that he’s got a lot of exciting projects in the works including a new website.  As soon as more details are available, we’ll let you know.  Thanks again Fumero for being a cool guy and for making cool art!  I’ve said this a lot and I’ll say it again – it baffles me that street artists are looked upon with scorn by city officials and real criminals such as those on Wall Street are allowed to roam the streets freely.
