Travis Fish

Travis Fish is a highly original artist who has made a name for himself as a “sweater- obsessed” painter. His large-scale acrylic paintings often feature branded sweaters, sport hoodies, and caricature portraits of celebrities. Fish’s works are whimsical and distorted, evoking the fabric of garments and exploring the intersection between art and fashion. He is interested in the way that clothing functions in society and often appropriates paintings by other artists of his generation as signifiers. The sweaters and hoodies that he chooses are not random; instead, Fish playfully and meaningfully transforms them into icons in their own right, imbuing them with a unique significance and elevating them to the level of fine art. His work is a fascinating commentary on the power of fashion and the ways in which it shapes our culture.
