    ARTIST BIO

    Hometown: Brooklyn, New York

    Working with plexiglass, steel, plastic, and scrap material, Tom Fruin takes on recognizably urban objects (houses, billboards, flags and the like), elevating their form to emblematic status and architectural scale. Sourcing sign shop offcuts and brilliantly-hued plexiglass scraps throughout Chinatown, Fruin weaves patchworks of primary colors into striated grids, recalling not only his earlier drug-bag quilts but also the energy and syncopation of New York City itself, very much in the vein of Piet Mondrian. Illuminated from within and constructed in municipal locales, Fruin's structures flash and dim to their own internal rhythms, becoming beacons of color and temples of light that dot city skylines and community parks alike. Nocturnally radiant and visible 24/7, we find landmarks and city-specific artifacts which transform public space in the vein of both land art and light space movements.

He has already exhibited in over 25 solo shows and over 30 group shows including ones in Los Angeles, New York, Texas, Argentina, Switzerland, Israel, Austria, Denmark, among others.
