March exhibition opening
The opening reception for Abstract Punk, a solo exhibition of paintings by acclaimed visual artist Tommas Fattovich, will be held during this Old Town Untapped! on March 4, 2022 and will expire on May 22, 2022.
The works included in this exhibition highlight dynamics of pigmentation and energy that immediately captivate the viewer with their incredible vibrancy and color. Fattovich paints with a combination of media, using his hands and tools such as plaster trowels to create a textured surface. His powerful compositions, eloquent and raw in their palette and gestures, draw the viewer in to feel the energy often overlooked anywhere in the world.
The vast artscape of Miami’s Wynwood Art District became the backdrop for Fattovich’s first art exhibitions beginning in 2010. His work has since been featured in exhibitions in Miami, San Francisco, Palm Springs, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Boca Raton, East Hampton, as well as his first solo show in 2021 in New York at the CJ One Gallery.
