If you’ve picked up any issue of Juxtapoz in the past year, you might have noticed that figurative painting is having a real golden moment in the art world right now. New York seems to be at the center of this new contemporary movement and Brooklyn-based painter Louis Fratino is a shining example of how emerging artists are translating their own experiences onto canvas in beautiful new ways. Last month, Fratino opened a new solo exhibition, Come Softly To Me at Sikkema Jenkins & Co., showcasing a huge body of work that affectionately stares deep into your soul and makes you fall in love with painting all over again, one stroke at a time.
