Photos by G. Art by Fumero.
Street artist Fumero took the art world by storm last year when his iconic “Table Series Logo” was featured in the packaging of the DVD “Exit Through The Gift Shop.” Proving he is not a 1 trick pony, Fumero’s first solo show “Fumeroism” at Phantom Audio in New York has been a major success. Fumero’s caricature-like figurative paintings are distinctive and the artist calls his style “Fumeroism.” He’s paid tribute to some of the greats in this exhibit including Notorious BIG, Bob Marley, Jim Morrison and Gandhi.
Over 20 works are on display including variations on “the Table Series Logo,” as well as paintings from his “Grandpa” series which has been seen all over the streets of New York. You’ll recognize many of the subjects in his paintings, but the interpretations of these figures belong solely to Fumero. I especially love the shadows that are not represented in black, but instead with vivid colors. The future is looking very bright for Fumero. You can see additional photos of “Fumeroism” at The Worley Gig.
Fumeroism is on exhibit now through the end of June, 2011 at Phantom Audio, located at 48 West 25th Street (East of 6th Ave), 10th Floor in NYC. Viewings are by appointment only, so please call (212)727-0452 if you plan to stop by.
