About the Artists
Bree Chapin is a New York City-based visual artist fueled by caffeine and a persistent sense of
restlessness. Her work is known for its use of bright, aggressive colors, shiny metallics, and
feverish imagery. She experiments with materials including resin, paint, metallic foils, collage,
silkscreen, and plastic throughout her process. Bree’s work appears regularly in galleries and
other art spaces around New York City.
Frankie Vinci's Rock 'n' Roll journey has led him to create the Pop Art he’s so passionate about
today. These raw-colorful Pop Art / Mixed Media pieces are reflective of his years as a
troubadour and his Rock 'n' Roll experiences performing in the iconic clubs and concert halls
from NYC to LA , all of this has become part of his tapestry as a Pop Artist. Frankie’s Pop Art is
inspired by music, fashion, film and the vintage billboards that have been distressed by weather
and time. The multi-layered backstage passes, concert posters covering the dark alleys and
backstage walls in Rock clubs like CBGB’s, all add fire to Frankie's creativity. Frankie’s artful
eye sees the beauty in subway graffiti, random paint drips, metal rust, torn paper, combined with
detailed painting and carefully composed layouts. His flair for color combinations and the
placement of iconic images over his canvases is creating a buzz in the art community.
