Farley del Rosario

A contemporary artist of the whimsical pop genre, Farley del Rosario (b. 1980) rose to prominence with a series that riffed on classic art canon pieces and iconic movie scenes, taking off from the familiar with his signature childlike flair. Both painter and sculptor, his style could be described as whimsical, clever, and just a little unnerving. His works are easily recognizable, populated with often slit-eyed humanoid figures possessing swirly wires for hands and geometric noses that extend into their hairlines. With a rare sense of humor and wonder, Farley crafts scenes with wide-reaching narratives, drawing from personal experience, dreams, and childhood.
