About this Artwork
Fattovich calls his style Abstract Punk.
His compositions evolve according to a subliminal process in which he responds viscerally to the colors, layers, lines and shapes, coaxing each composition along until it reveals itself to him as being finished.
Fattovich is motivated by a deep inner need to express energy and spontaneity.
The imagery in his work is a reflection of what he calls “destroyed surreal environments.”
The rust and rabble of the decaying urban environment, both in his hometown of Milan and his adopted home in Florida, finds its way into his compositions. Fragments of the modern world seem to appear and then disappear in the work.
