Kate Fauvell is Hip Hop in the Contemporary Art World. She paints what she knows: the urban culture of growing up in New York City. From Queens, born and raised in a divorced working class family, Kate began to make art.
Kate paints what she knows, stories about life, moments in time that make us all human. Love, loss, paint. After spending several years working with teenagers in Brooklyn, her work became about something bigger than her, a more universal story. She experienced growing up in NYC for a second time.The fear, challenges, the loss, the inequalities, the racism, the fun, the friendships, love, hate, violence, temptations, reality, the jokes, the search for self.
Kate paints from the heart. Her work is about the heart of NYC, the greatest, roughest, most caring and careless city in the world. Kate paints what she knows.
