During Art Basel 2016, Fumeroism created Nanny’s Kitchen and populated it with the vibrant, multi-colored expressionistic characters for which he is known. The mural portrays an earlier time in his life when family members would gather around the kitchen table to talk, reminisce, and simply enjoy each other’s company. Nanny’s Kitchen now takes its place in Fumero’s The Table Series, a body of paintings that inspired his Table Series logo.
At 30’ x 60’ it is his largest wall to date. Fumeroism tackled it with gusto over a ten day period: buffing the wall, projecting the outline, laying down the first colors, adding depth and dimensionality, filling in details, etc.
Charm City Streets first met Fumeroism on Saturday morning, December 3rd, shortly after he finished the three figures on the left. Over the next two and a half days Charm City Streets was fascinated by the pace and expertise with which Fumeroism painted the mural. Now you can follow along as Fumeroism completes his portrayal of his mother, Uncle Bill, Aunt Theresa, Nanny (grandmother), and Uncle Anthony enjoying their little kaffeeklatsch (not sure of the equivalent Italian expression).
After talking with visiting family members, Fumeroism kicked things up into overdrive and worked straight through the night to complete Nanny’s Kitchen. His energetic pace begged the question – is this a street artist or a personal trainer in action?
Here is Fumero’s Table Series logo. You will find it all across the country wherever quality street art is found.
