Considered one of the foremost members of the so called “Bowery School” or “Warhol’s Children” generation of artists, the locally based artist continues to explore “to what extent does art come from the artist, and to what extent does it arise from forces independent of the artist.” These latest large scale paintings are based on mythic Fantasia movie from Disney, so it comes […]

Streets: Tom Fruin’s Stained Glass House @ Brooklyn Bridge Park

As a followup to his stained glass watchtower in 2012 (covered), Tom Fruin created a new installation last month at the Brooklyn Bridge Park for the Dumbo Arts Festival. Entitled Kolonihavehus, the house created from plexiglass was a hit with visitors during the day and at night, although it was particularly stunning lit up once the sun went down. Temporarily inhabited by duo CoreAct, attendees of the event were able to see the art structure enhanced by a collaborative physical performance. Via Colossal.
