14 year old Charles Gitnick from Woodland Hills, CA is appearing at Spectrum in Art Basel Miami 2016 and using his unique artistic style to make a loud cry against gun violence. Visit his works on his website at www.charlesarts.com.
Charles began painting landscapes and seascapes at the age of 7. His current work, 3D presentations of replica guns mounted and treated with various techniques, inspires the viewer to consider gun violence, its impact on our children and the poignant voice they raise.
Charles uses a variety of styles and techniques to create his 3D Gun Art. His abstract paintings, created by using a spring-loaded toy air rifle and other techniques, incorporate the gun but make it either disappear into the piece or take on a new association. His art blurs the focus on the gun within it and evokes provocative thought and dialog.
Charles has reached amazing popularity in the Social Media arena and also around the world through his participation in Art Monaco 2015, Art Bogota 2015, Art Zurich 2015 and various Solo Exhibitions.
