Opening of the exhibition in March

The opening reception for Abstract Punk, a solo exhibition of paintings by acclaimed visual artist Tommas Fattovich, will take place during Old Town Untapped! March 4, 2022 and until May 22, 2022.

The works included in this exhibition highlight the dynamics of pigmentation and energy, which immediately engage 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 gesture, draw the viewer in to feel the often overlooked energy that surrounds him in the world.

The expansive art landscape of Miami’s Wynwood Art District became the backdrop for Fattovich’s early art exhibitions beginning in 2010. His work has since been included in exhibitions in Miami, San Francisco, Palm Springs, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Boca Raton, East Hampton, as well as his first solo exhibition in New York at CJ One Gallery in 2021.
