Blog by Master of 3D Pop Art Charles Fazzino. He is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York City & is one of the most popular and highly-collected pop artists of all time. During his more-than-thirty years as a pop artist, he has inserted his unique, detailed, vibrant, and three-dimensional style of artwork into the very fabric of popular culture.
One of the most ambitious Charles Fazzino limited edition releases ever, “Historically, Our American Flag” has the artist living up to his oft-used moniker of pop culture historian.
“I set out to create an artwork to celebrate the entire history of our country. I spent months researching and creating the images. There are so many notable moments that I’m fairly certain there will be a sequel to this, but I love the way this image captures the entire essence of The United States of America, my country…and the country that I love.” – Charles Fazzino

Skateboard Deck art is hot! And Fazzino Skateboard Deck art is even hotter. The Master of 3D pop art released his first two skateboard deck limited editions in 2018 and both have sold out almost immediately. We present to you, the third in the series, titled “Misty Memories.” The inspiration for this new line of art actually came from Heather Fazzino who created a series of her original artwork on skateboard decks…and introduced Charles to this whole new world. It all hearkens back to the origins of the skateboard culture when manufacturers started the trend of putting graphics onto decks. From there, artists began creating their personal spins on the new art form and from there, it’s just exploded around the world.
“I’m having a lot of fun with the skateboard decks,” said Charles Fazzino. “I wasn’t even aware of this growing artistic trend until I saw Heather doing it…and I just loved the idea. The colorful and detailed images lend themselves perfectly to this new medium and we can still make them by hand and give them the artistic flair that I’m known for. I just think they are cool!”

Charles Fazzino recently traveled to Busan, Korea to check up on his latest creation – a pair of outdoor sculptures to adorn the front of a brand new shopping center. Earlier this year, he was commissioned by the owners of the Fiesta Mall to create a series of works to decorate the new center.
With the execution help of a team of artists and sculptors in Korea overseen by Bruno Art Group, Fazzino designed two 16-foot steel sculptures. Together they are titled “Busan Meets the Big Apple.” One depicts Fazzino’s most famous icon, the NYC big apple, and the other captures the Korean shopping experience. They will sit in front of the mall, book-ending the pillars that define the entrance welcoming in eager shoppers.
Since the conceptualization of the two sculptures, the project has expanded to include two multi-panel murals on aluminum and a steel bench for the inside of the mall. One mural of New York City will consist of five aluminum panels, each one measuring 48″ x 72″. The second, in keeping with the theme of the sculptures, depicts the city of Busan in typical Fazzino 3D pop art style.
In April, 2019, Fazzino went to Busan to oversee the production and spend a few days with the crew, adding some finishing touches.
“I am grateful to both Motti Abramovitz of Bruno Art Group and Insoon Cho of In & Out Art Korea for spearheading this project. They’ve been the boots on the ground and have managed the entire project. I had seen renderings of the sculptures before but had not seen them live and I was blown away by their size, level of detail, and vibrancy. I’ve long wanted to move into public installations and I’m so proud of these pieces here in Busan. I’ve learned a lot during the course of this project and I’m looking forward to doing more larger-than-life-sized works in the future.” – Charles Fazzino
While in Busan, Fazzino filmed a short documentary about the project:
Charles and Heather Fazzino are at it again, but this time they’re creating beautiful installations in Stamford, CT for the city’s outdoor arts initiative. Cheryl Veukelic, the Senior Operations Manager from Stamford Downtown, commissioned the Fazzinos to artistically re-invent the mechanics kiosk outside the Ferguson Library. Through the Fazzinos collaboration, they executed a vision of “Butterflies and Books.” The knowledge you gain through reading books can set you free, like a butterfly. The kiosk was unveiled last week by the Fazzinos along with Alice Knapp, President of Ferguson Library and Sandy Goldstein, The President of Stamford Downtown.
“This project was really great to work on, because it really brightens up the corner outside Ferguson Library. We’re reinventing these kiosks with our combination of Fazzino styles.” -Heather Fazzino
“I am so happy to finally see the completion of my vision in this project. Literature and reading help the the mind take flight! I LOVE to incorporate butterflies in my work, so what better way to combine flight of the imagination from a book and the beauty of a butterfly!” -Charles Fazzino
I can’t wait to have my solo design premiere on the light box that my father designed in 2012. It needed a “Fazzino Face-lift” as my dad calls it, and I’ve been working on it for awhile. It will be on the corner of Main Street and Summer Street and I expect to have it completed in a few weeks so stay tuned.” -Heather Fazzino
We are proud to announce the release of our new giftware collection. More than a year in development, the line is the result of a collaboration between Fazzino and German giftware company, Goebel, who are known for “The Art of Lifestyle.”
Known for their artistic sensibility and the quality of their products, Goebel was the natural choice to adapt the Fazzino art line to fine home goods and more. Highlighted by a series of 6 bone china mugs (available separately), the collection also consists of beautiful pop art umbrellas, exquisite vases, coasters, and place mats. The same set of images (New York, Venice, Paris, Moscow, London, Berlin) if used throughout to create a wonderfully consistent look and feel.
“I’m very proud to have been able to collaborate with a company like Goebel. The products are beautiful and I love the respect the folks at Goebel demonstrate in everything they do for hand-crafted art. This is a new and wonderful canvas for my work and I’m looking forward to continuing to create new items for the line.” – Charles Fazzino
