Portrait of an Artist - Fumeroism
The subject matter of this painting is a departure from the more common subject matter Fumero is known to paint. This mural-like composition, is for the artist, the beginning of a new approach to subject matter. This particular painting is a self-portrait of the artist but not of his flesh. The multiple imagery portrays metaphorical representations of Fumero’s reality from past to present. This muralesque design is a cohesive interaction that collectively combines numerous images to create a conceptually surreal and unified theme.
