Gauntlet Gallery is proud to present Chilean artist Fab Ciraolo’s first ever U.S. show

Fab Ciraolo’s iconic portraits highlight the conflict between extravagance and rebellion, while modernizing our perspective of historical figures like Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo, and The Virgin Mary - changing our impressions of them forever. Painters, pop musicians and film stars, even revolutionaries and royalty are all placed on equal footing, offering us a post-modern brand of counter-culture.

Rendered in a highly saturated palette, awash in a supernatural bath of light and space, the subjects assume the elite status inherent in traditional figurative painting. Yet despite their whims of superiority and social significance, it is their underground, cutting edge style and blatantly defiant demeanor that define Fab’s subjects. Making subtle references to Vampire Weekend and The Black Keys, and adorning them in the freshest hipster gear, these prominent cultural heavyweights are given a new identity that is permanently tied to the underlying notion of rebellion, redefining and refreshing their cultural image.
