“Mixed Messages” is artist Wonder Lee’s latest exhibit.  Debuting at Phantom Audio in New York on September 9, 2011, the show is clear about one thing – Wonder Lee is very talented and her art is extremely affordable – even in these horrible economic times.  Wonder Lee is not just an artist, author and poet, she donates her time teaching art workshops to children.  She’s one of the nicest artists on the scene and her original haiku that she Tweets daily is very inspiring.

Her art is very diverse and a prevalent theme is the role entertainment plays in our lives.  The art in this mixed media exhibit ranges in price from $40 to $800, so if you are looking to build your art collection, you will definitely want to check out “Mixed Messages” by Wonder Lee.

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.

The event will take place on Thursday, June 2nd, 2011 from 7:00pm – 10:00pm

"Salvaged Perspective" by J Carlos Pinto. Now showing at Phantom Audio in NYC

Frankie Velez presents a must see exhibit by Guatamalan artist J Carlos Pinto.  Entitled “Salvaged Perspective,” Pinto has made collages out of pieces of New York subway Metrocards.  The detail of each work is incredible and the exhibit has dozens of works in every size.  Subjects range from the Mona Lisa to Barack Obama!  You’ll see these icons as you never have before and I know you’ll be wowed.  I’ve seen a few pieces of J Carlos Pinto’s work before but this was my first experience of seeing a full exhibit and it is incredible!   He’s extremely prolific and you’ll definitely find yourself wondering how he makes these works of art.

Notorious BIG by J Carlos Pinter

 Spotted in the crowd at the opening night gala reception were artists Wonder Lee, Eric Eyeball Richardson, Fumero, Gigi Chen and Sienide.  I was fortunate enough to talk to J Carlos Pinto and he was very nice and approachable.  You can see a photo of that after the jump.

“Salvaged Perspective” by J Carlos Pinto is now showing at Phantom Audio, located at 48 West 25th Street, 10th Floor in Manhattan.  The exhibit will be showing until the end of May, 2011 so don’t miss it!
