This summer, I had the opportunity to create eight impressionist chairs for a window display competition in downtown Chicago. The competition, co-sponsored by the Art Institute of Chicago and Oak Street Design, was created to help build citywide excitement for the “Impressionism-Fashion and Modernity” exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago. CHIARoScURO, one the galleries where I show my artwork, called me and asked me if I would be willing to help them create a stand-out window with unique, one-of-a-kind impressionist artwork. Here is a photo of their window display. There are four other chairs, besides these.
Artist Todd Fendos has been painting on unusual mediums for over 15 years. His creativity is evident in all that he does. From whimsical illustrations to hand-painted chairs and amazing murals one never knows what to expect from his unusual and amazing works of art. Todd is excited to finally have his art featured extensively on his own website and he hopes you will take a moment to check it out in its entirety. His work is also currently on display at at CHIARoScURO, located in Chicago Place on Michigan Avenue in Chicago and can also purchase his artwork online on www.Etsy.com.
Todd loves to get lost in his artwork and get much of his inspiration from many of the most famous artists in our history. He says there is nothing quite like the feeling of seeing the joy his artwork brings to others.
