Charles Fazzino is a 3-D artist of graphics and some sculpture. Over the course of his twenty-year-career, Fazzino has had over forty one-man exhibitions. He creates twenty to thirty new editions each year.
Best known for his whimsical, exuberant renditions of New York City, Fazzino has also immortalized locales such as San Francisco, Jerusalem, Munich and Atlanta; pop icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and the characters of Walt Disney; and famous sports franchises such as the New York Yankees, Miami Dolphins, and Denver Broncos.
As the creator of limited edition fine art silkscreen serigraphs, he is best known for his use of vibrant colors, exceptional detail and story telling ability. After going through a hand-printed silkscreen process, each image is meticulously cut, glued, glittered, and assembled-again, all by hand. Each piece is an individual creation.
Charles Fazzino has also recently branched out into other mediums and has signed on several secondary product licensees of his own. Fazzino 3-D sculptures, chess sets, writing instruments, sleep wear, hosiery, and puzzles are among the products that can be found on the marketplace.
His artwork can be found in the private collections of Rosie O'Donnell, Michael Eisner, Hillary Clinton, Roger Clemens, Dan Marino, and many other internationally renowned figures.
Charlse Fazzino was selected as the artist for the 46th Annual Grammy Awards in 2004. He will also be creating the artwork for the Super Bowl XXXVII in Houston the same year.
