FVCKRENDER Exhibits Large Scale and Digital Art During Frieze NY

Contemporary artist FVCKRENDER will host an independent debut solo art show (Ascend) this May during Frieze New York hosted by acclaimed pop culture critic and curator Carlo McCormick. 

The Ascend exhibit, a collection of physical works alongside digital works, is a statement about independence and evolution. Large-scale sculptures, original prints, and editions will be unveiled. The works range from a 70” polyurethane chain link sculpture to 4” reinforced hydrocal plaster sculptures in editions. 

Carlo McCormick’s Q&A with FVCKRENDER is a unique opportunity for fans to get an inside view on his parallel to the rise of a new breed of artists who echo the movement that grew out of the streets, from Jean Michel-Basquiat, Keith Haring, to KAWS. Evolving beyond his digital origins, the event is a culmination of FVCKRENDER’s continuing narrative.

Ascend contributes significantly to forging forward into a new era of art and artists. Additionally, DS & Durga will provide the scent for the exhibition, harnessing an immersive environment. 

“In all of my experience as a critic and curator, the art that speaks to people the most is art that captivates the mind and spirit. FVCKRENDER’s art amazes and inspires and appeals.” – Carlo McCormick 

The artist will release six new artworks. Three of these are digital-only pieces, each available in a limited edition of ten, exclusively at the show. Additionally, three prints, also in limited editions of ten and each accompanied by a digital artwork, will be available for purchase online. Notably, one of these prints will be sold through a ranked auction online. This diverse collection provides unique opportunities for attendees and online viewers to acquire and engage with FVCKRENDER’s art. 

“I want to open the art world by offering art at accessible prices to appeal to a new, wider audience. Holding this exhibit alongside Frieze New York is my way of tapping into the art vibe and extending it outward.” – FVCKRENDER 

Finally, in collaboration with LISA, the innovative platform for fractional fine art sales, the 4ft “Big Care” sculpture by Fvckrender will be available for fractional purchase by up to 300 collectors. Beyond owning a percentage of the sculpture, each collector will receive a limited-edition NFT of the sculpture and a signed, limited-edition physical print from Fvckrender. 

“We’re excited to join FVCKRENDER on his mission to make art accessible for all. By participating in the fractional ownership of the Big Care sculpture, collectors will not only receive actual ownership of the artwork with a limited edition NFT and print, but they will also directly impact the future legacy of the piece by having the power to place the artwork in public space.” – Nina Kim, Chief Curator at LISA.
