FAUST Bio:
New York-based artist FAUST carries on the tradition of text-based painting while incorporating contemporary urban aesthetics representative of his generation–evoking the graffiti movement established in New York and widespread across the globe. Initially garnering recognition for his public art, the formal qualities of FAUST's murals explore scale and placement to challenge how viewers perceive graffiti. The poignant and site-specific words that comprise each mural engage in public discourse and resonate with the community.

The power of words has been at the core of FAUST's studio fine artwork as well. A single word or phrase on a canvas can speak volumes. FAUST’s paintings have been exhibited from the Grand Palais in Paris to the Park Avenue Armory in New York. FAUST painted the facade of Urban Nation Museum of Urban Contemporary Art in Berlin and participated in the Artmossphere street art biennial at the Winzavod Contemporary Art Center in Moscow.

FAUST's work has appealed to audiences far beyond the street, painting commissioned murals in the New York headquarters of Adobe, Spotify, MTV, and Nike. Tiffany & Co. commissioned neon artworks for their corporate collection that are on permanent display at some of their boutiques around the world. FAUST has been the subject of a profile in The New York Times as well as being named as one of Juxtapoz Magazine's Top 20 Graffiti Artists to Know Right Now, the New Yorker's Calligraphy Stars of Instagram, and Paper Magazine's Young NYC Artists Shaking Things Up.
