Selected Works

Fazzino was born in 1955, in Westchester County, New York. Charles Fazzino is now the most popular 3-D pop paper artist in the world today.

His mother was an artist and his father, a high fashion shoe designer. He was fascinated at a very early age with pop-up children’s books and 3-D movies. Fazzino’s debut in the art world came at age 15, when a collection of his pen-and-ink drawings attracted much attention at a 1973 exhibit in Bedford Hills, New York. His work was a hit and he sold more than two-thirds of the collection. Charles enrolled in the noted New York City School of Visual Arts to hone his skills and sharpen the unique style of whimsy and fantasy. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1977 and studied at the famous Parsons School of Design.

As the creator of limited edition fine art silkscreen serigraphs, he is best known for his use of vibrant colors, exceptional detail and brilliant storytelling. The creation of Fazzino’s works is an elaborate process from beginning to end that starts with extensive research into the subject. The work is then drawn, printed, hand-cut piece by piece and finally painstakingly constructed. Each work of art becomes a limited-edition serigraph, or mixed media lithograph, each piece is raised, cut or folded differently to become 3-Dimensional. Finally, every piece is then finished differently with acrylic and glitter paint. Thus, no two images are exactly alike.

Charles Fazzino has received numerous awards. His work has been represented in over 600 art galleries worldwide. In addition, charity work with organizations such as Rosie O’Donnell’s The for All Kids Foundation, The Muscular Dystrophy Association, and the Habitat for Humanity have added to Fazzino’s endless resume of achievements.
