Fratino is a young artist living in Brooklyn.
“ I think I want to make paintings that are tender, or intimate. Often these are images of my boyfriend or my family almost doing nothing, sitting on a table or lying on a couch. I’ve always been working like that, even at high school, I would paint people close to me. I think it’s part of my nature. This decision is neither politically or conceptually driven. It’s just what I feel attracted to.”
