Fazzino has been creating art since the 80’s and became known for his 3D pop Art. Every single building, or car were all painted then cut piece by piece and like a puzzle put together to create the final composition. The result is 3D POP ART! They are fun and beautiful. They also are like capsules of time because the artist depicts cities as they are at the moment he makes the painting therefore, by looking at the buildings you can see the time of the city. He had a 2003 Las Vegas he did and there are in there many casinos that are no longer in existence such as Aladdin and Stardust now Planet Hollywood and Fashion Show Mall. Here is more info on Charles Fazzino:
