Although I’ve written about street artist Fumero many times before, it wasn’t until I attended his latest solo show “In Your Face” where I realized what Fumeroism is all about. The show, which takes place at 17 Frost Gallery in Brooklyn builds on his iconic “Table Series Logo” that is seen all over NYC and beyond. This time, instead of faceless people sittting around the dinner table, the faces are alive with the vivid colors Fumero uses. As you peruse the gallery, you’ll reaffirm your definition of what family means.
In addition to the familes (that are on enormous canvases), there’s an icons section that features Fumero’s colorful vision of people from Slick Rick to Gandhi to Marilyn Monroe. One of my favorites was Al Pacino (pictured below).
The opening night reception was a rager and the closing night reception on 09/10/11 promises to be the same. The closing party will take place during the day, so don’t miss it. 17 Frost Gallery is located at 17 Frost in Brooklyn.
