He has received many private and important commissions and has been selected as the official artist for festivals and events all over the world. Charles is often referred to as a pop culture historian because of the breadth of his work and the way it touches his collectors and captures the best parts of their contemporary lives. His legacy will mark him as part of the next generation of famous pop art artists as he follows the paths originally forged by pop art pioneers like Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Red Grooms, and Robert Rauschenberg.
The majority of Charles Fazzino's fine art prints are made using a hand-stenciling printmaking process commonly referred to as silkscreen serigraphy, or silkscreen printing. It's important to understand how any fine art print is made because each process has its advantages and disadvantages and artists will use different techniques depending upon the desired effect.
Silkscreen art gained in popularity in the 1960's with the explosion of the pop art movement. Revolutionary artists like Andy Warhol and Robert Raushenberg gravitated toward the silkscreen printing technique because it allowed them to utilize bright, bold, and true colors when reproducing their original paintings. Charles Fazzino began making silkscreen prints of his original works in the late 1980's.
