WHO IS THIS COOL PEEP?: Charles Fazzino
This Cool Peep is Charles Fazzino – an internationally renowned, 3D pop artist whose work is shown in fine art galleries and museums in more than 20 countries around the world.
WHAT ARE A FEW OF YOUR FAVORITE THINGS?:
Exercise, red wine, TRAVELING…what makes me happy? My family and my art. I love to work!
WHEN YOU ARE ALONE AND YOU THINK NO ONE IS WATCHING YOU…WHAT QUIRKY THINGS ARE YOU DOING?:
Oh probably singing to my favorite Madonna song.
(Note from CC: I, myself, do a wicked rendition of the “Material Girl” video from 1985 – I smell a collaboration, Charles, LOL.)
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE HAUNTS?:
My favorite haunts are definitely restaurants…..most are in New York City……Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse…the Four Seasons….love Harvest on the Hudson in Hastings…and of course, KATZ Deli on the lower east side.
(Note from CC: LOVE the Harvest on Fort Pond in Montauk – that is some seriously, spectacular dining! I can smell the Calamari Salad as we speak..eeerrr….type)
EMPTY YOUR POCKETS RIGHT NOW…WHAT DID YOU FIND?:
WHAT IS ONE THING NO ONE WOULD EVER GUESS ABOUT YOU?:
I love the color black…nobody would guess that from looking at my artwork.
WHAT IS ON YOUR IPOD, RIGHT NOW?
Madonna, Fun….all the new stuff.
WHERE CAN WE FIND YOU NEXT?
I’m always traveling and doing shows all over the world. In March, I’ll be in France doing shows in Lyon and Paris. I’m the official artist for a festival in Lyon called Fois de Lyon and I’m excited about that. In April, I’ll have my first show in Vienna and then I’m on tour in Germany. I’m also looking forward to doing the artwork for my ninth Major League Baseball All-Star Game this summer at Citi Field in New York.
Note from CC: If you travel a lot (like the man, himself), you might have had the honor of seeing Charles Fazzino’s newest sculpture in Terminal 8 at JFK International Airport (American Airlines)…as you pulled your Heys “World” Luggage behind you (Glossy polycarbonate composite luggage boasts pop-art renditions of the continents by renowned artist Charles Fazzino – sold at Neiman Marcus and other fine retailers).
Having personally just wrapped first run on the production of the hilariously BRILLIANT comedy show, The Dork Knight (and living the last month of my life in the world of Batman), my vote for favorite Fazzino, is his Pop-Art version of The Dark Knight…truly magnificent!
