On January 14th, Natalia Fabia will present her first New York solo exhibit at Jonathan Levine Gallery. Inspired by people and places with a punk rock sensibility, 'Punk Rock Rainbow Sparkle' features fantasy narratives and actual moments captured from the artist’s vibrant life, her passion for ornate fashion, nightlife and glamour with a punk rock edge.
“Punk rock is one of my true loves. Punk to me is an attitude, a lifestyle. Punk is a middle finger, punk is do-it-yourself, do what you want. It’s a kind of freedom. I’m attracted to my subjects for having that quality. This attitude is what I wanted to convey in this series. My models (many of which are friends) are all tough, independent, strong, fun, hard working, talented, tattooed and stylishly dressed. I look at punk rock as being dirty and rough, yet sparkly and enticing at the same time, and that’s the theme of my paintings.” ~ Natalia Fabia
