Here’s his exhibit:
“The Art of Politics” has just opened at The Art League, and you can see it through Sunday, October 2!
Fischerkeller creates his paintings on large canvases, the better to fit the large issues his art addresses. Fifteen are included in this exhibitThey’re made with spray paint and hand-cut stencils, as you can see in the video at the top of this post.
Instead of focusing on political personalities, Fischerkeller takes on issues: homelessness, climate change, criminal justice. The figures in his paintings are often women transported from art history.
