Kostas Seremetis at Fourth Wall Project.

 

By / / “I create contemporary fine art using iconic characters from pop culture, from Rock ‘n’ Roll, film, comics and classic cartoons, ” says Boston native Kostas Seremetis. “I don’t feel paintings are individuals, they feel more like a group or gang… which explains why I repeat icons or images in different mediums and situations, to better amplify the body of work.” Seremetis started his art career in local nightclubs and coffee shops in the early nineties (ex: Other Side Cafe, Axis/Avalon). He then moved to NY in 1996, where he still resides, and held his first New York Solo Show in 1997 (Mary Anthony Gallery). His work is collected worldwide, and he counts some heavyhitters as fans (and customers), such as Ian Astbury of THE CULT, who declared Kostas as “the Rauschenberg of our generation,” and Darren Aronofsky who calls Kostas “an exceptional artist.” The exhibition runs through Sunday, October 23rd, 2011.
