5th Annual Artist VIP List: Damon Tommolino

Works are politically motivated, but aesthetically driven. Instructive, socially oriented tableaux are virtually audible thanks to the energetic palette and refined brushwork. Each vision unbuttons traditional propaganda, challenging the control paradigms that are commonplace. Execution of works is earthy, meaty, making for irony. Each scene captures a moment, eerie in its fluency, sincere and earnest. You can learn something from these works. Look and find truth in ideas you have long rallied against. Look again, find chaos. Look from another angle, and find a homecoming. The panels are an evolution of an artist, and you are along for the ride.
