Alex Turco


Title ~"Tribute to Louis Vuitton"


Title ~ "Free"


Title ~ "Dream On"

While in NYC and after setting up my art show at Charles Nolan this past June, I was browsing Gansevoort in the meatpacking district and discovered an amazing artist through the window right next door. Italian Artist Alex Turco. Unfortunately it was closed so I couldn't go in. But from the glass window I fell in love. I have one photo I took of his piece, Free below.



I cannot tell you how much more amazing his pieces are in person. He had this mixed media technique of a thick glaze that pored over his work and made is look like it was dripping wet with gel and especially the piece "Free" it looked like plastic wrap around the subjects face. AMAZING!!
Here is another photo I took of a reflection though the window trying to capture that texture.




I am definitely going to have to experiment with some of my work, I just love that spark of inspiration, such a great drive it brings. I will also hopefully have a new piece up tomorrow for you all as well :)
