This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Charles Fazzino is a 3-D artist of graphics and some sculpture. Over the course of his twenty-year-career, Fazzino has had over forty one-man exhibitions. He creates twenty to thirty new editions each year.

Best known for his whimsical, exuberant renditions of New York City, Fazzino has also immortalized locales such as San Francisco, Jerusalem, Munich and Atlanta; pop icons such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, and the characters of Walt Disney; and famous sports franchises such as the New York Yankees, Miami Dolphins, and Denver Broncos.

As the creator of limited edition fine art silkscreen serigraphs, he is best known for his use of vibrant colors, exceptional detail and story telling ability. After going through a hand-printed silkscreen process, each image is meticulously cut, glued, glittered, and assembled-again, all by hand. Each piece is an individual creation.

Charles Fazzino has also recently branched out into other mediums and has signed on several secondary product licensees of his own. Fazzino 3-D sculptures, chess sets, writing instruments, sleep wear, hosiery, and puzzles are among the products that can be found on the marketplace.

His artwork can be found in the private collections of Rosie O'Donnell, Michael Eisner, Hillary Clinton, Roger Clemens, Dan Marino, and many other internationally renowned figures.

Charlse Fazzino was selected as the artist for the 46th Annual Grammy Awards in 2004. He will also be creating the artwork for the Super Bowl XXXVII in Houston the same year.

Biography from GallArt.com:
Charles Fazzino, American pop artist, has created his own unique mix of the art form. The seeds of his inspiration came from artistic family roots and from Manhattan, the city which fired his youthful imagination during his formative early childhood years. He was captivated by giant picture books depicting life in late 20th Century urban America. 3-D movies and pop-up story books further sparked his imagination.

His work depicts the remnants of childhood visions of yellow taxi cabs, the Statue of Liberty, storefronts decked with color, and the heart throb of life itself that is embodied in Manhattan. As a youth, Charles would take advantage of every opportunity to ride the train into the city to absorb the color and excitement of the Village of Central Park. The late 1970's and early 1980's found him as a regular at the Washington Square Park Outdoor Art Festival in the Village. Then he began exhibiting on the national art circuit including shows at Ann Arbor Art Festival in Michigan, Miami’s Coconut Grove Art Festival, and the Las Olas Museum Art Festival in Ft. Lauderdale.

Fazzino’s works include pigmented serigraphs, mixed media lithographs and posters. Some of his images offer kinetic pieces with quartz movements utilized to create continuous motion. His pop-out book presents rare insight into the thought process of the artist himself, with a very intimate, personal look into his life. He also creates sculptures, jewelry, pillows and ties.

Additionally, limited edition 3-D animation pieces have been produced as a collective creative effort with King Features Syndicate, Hanna-Barbera Studios, and most recently with Disney.

The 1996 Olympics and the spirit of the city of Atlanta inspired his work "Always a Dream, Always Atlanta". He also does work with sports themes of golf, tennis, football, soccer and ice hockey, and professions such as doctors, dentists and lawyers.
