Home is where the art is, and luckily there’s no shortage of amazing local pieces to display in your new Hamptons abode. Here, we highlight a few New York artists that will be showcasing the works you need to know, love, and snag right now at the Castle Fitzjohns pop-up gallery held at a dreamy contemporary home located at 695 Little Noyac Path in Water Mill, listed by The Avigdor / Peyton Team at Douglas Elliman, during Art Market + Design.
Currently on display at NYC’s Castle Fitzjohns Gallery, Brooklyn street artist WhisBe — short for “What is Beauty” — first rose to fame in an HBO documentary centered around the elusive Banksy. His unparalleled Vandal Gummy series is not to be missed, with the seven-foot sculptures finding homes in places such as the World Trade Center.
Born in the Lower East Side in the early ‘80s, Ori Carino has been living and breathing NY art since childhood, assisting legendary artist Keith Haring in his youth. Carino’s work flawlessly blends Tibetan mythology and iconography, an homage to his Buddhist beliefs, with the graffiti and mural art roots he began his career upon.
An alumnus of the School of Visual Art, artist Sam Tufnell aims to create pieces that simultaneously exhibit fresh ways of displaying traditional matter in an anti-establishment way. Tufnell, whose work can be seen at Castle Fitzjohns Gallery, employs ready-made pieces to make illuminated castings of famed pop culture figures like Darth Vader alongside omnipresent figurines such as gnomes.
Having previously sold his works on the sidewalk at Broadway and Prince, NY-native artist Marcus Jansen draws influence from graffiti art and abstract expressionism in the production of his paintings. Jansen is featured in the permanent collections of renowned museums like the Smithsonian in Washington, DC and had a documentary released last year on his creative process.
