The reason I chose the title for this piece is because I recently quit smoking.
I created this piece as a collaboration with my girlfriend artist Elwira Pioro
My inspiration in creating this piece was to try a new technique using canvas on canvas layering
Chicago artist Tom Fedro creates art with zing and boundless humor. His innovations of creative and playful discovery incorporate a combination of pop art collage and whimsical potraiture that have an addictive rhythm all their own. Bright colors, big features and bold lines that seem to be electrically charged represent an exiting way of seeing and experiencing the world through his eyes.
