Fupete is an Italian artist and illustrator whose work dons not only the gallery, but billboards, print design, and products (likes shoes!). Fupete’s work is expressive and raw, and sometimes out of control. He incorporates dripping paint, choppy mark-making, and solemn faces to give his work feeling. I often get the sense of chaos with his work. The figures exist in this environment, but I am undecided if that’s where they want to be. I really love the billboards Fupete has participated in, as well as his murals. They are a bit more structured than his paintings, but they still incorporate bold, striking color and unique character design.
