Louis Fratino

Die bunten Tage


29.04.2022 – 04.06.2022
Studio Nude, 2022 Oil on canvas 241 (H) x 127 (W) cm

Galerie Neu is pleased to announce “Die bunten Tage”, Louis Fratino’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. The New York based artist will be presenting new paintings meditating on color’s capacity to inform the emotional register of the everyday, the intimate and scenery.

Louis Fratino makes paintings, drawings and sculptures from specific memories and art historical references. While drawing heavily on American and European Modernism, book illustration, and antiquity, Fratino has developed a distinct visual language portraying the body, interiors and landscape. The potential for the immediate as a source of discovery is revealed though close looking at details of daily life. 

Louis Fratino (b. 1993, US) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, in 2015. He is a recipient of a Fulbright Research Fellowship in Painting, Berlin (2015-16).
