Mixed Media Painter -- Digital Artist

expressive contemporary artist  --  edgy, unexpected, evocative  --  hyper realistic beauty

Fabry's paintings fuse fragments of street art, posters, photography, or grafitti -- repurposed as layered elements with acrylic paint and gestural brushstrokes. His rhythmic constructions convey order out of chaos, merging fractal imagery in expressionist abstract compositions. 

JAZ Fabry is an American Abstract Painter and Digital Artist. He splits his time living summers in Paris France and winters on Maui in Hawaii. He currently resides on Maui, with an atelier at Treehouse Studios in Haiku. His art is featured in private collections across the United States and in Europe. For much of the past seven years Jaz lived in Lahaina on Maui, which was totally destroyed by a firestorm this past August. This tragic event provided a source of inspiration and motivation for recent paintings during his summer residence in Paris. As a painter, over the past two years in Paris and Maui, Jaz has created a significant body of work -- a hundred paintings stretched on canvas. Before launching his career as an Mixed Media Painter and Digital Artist, Jaz sold over a hundred panoramic landscape photographs as the featured artist at Capture Gallery in Sonoma California wine country.

Previously, in 1992, Jaz Fabry was Co-founder of i3 Information & Imagination Inc, an Internet Tech Start-up in Westport CT.  During his tenure, he won 9 prestigious Awards as a Creative Director and Designer. He sold his i3 corporate shares in 1999 to finance his passion as a Fine Artist.

Fabry was born in Bronxville NY, and grew up with his family in New Canaan CT and Maine. He has lived in Oakland CA, Paris France, St John USVI and Minneapolis MN, where he attended Macalester College, and earned a BFA degree from the University of Minnesota.

FAMILY HISTORY OF ARTISTS - Jaz Fabry comes from three generations of painters.  

His father Alois Fabry Jr. was a painter, focusing on abstract landscapes in Europe and Maine. His watercolor paintings are in a style similar to John Marin. In the late 1930’s he worked as a muralist through the Federal Art Project of the WPA, and shared a New York studio with Philip Guston and Arshile Gorky. He is best known for two 900 square-foot Murals in the Rotunda of Brooklyn Borough Hall, started in 1937 which took two years to complete. The gigantic murals were controversially torn down and destroyed in 1946 by radical politicians during communist witch-hunts. He went on to be a Professor of Art at Pratt Institute, Beaux Art Institute, the Art Students League and Columbia University, before founding the Fine Art Department in New Canaan, CT.

Jaz's uncle Jaro Fabry was also an artist. In the 1930's, 40's and 50's. He was a celebrated illustrator for Hollywood Movie Stars and Celebrity nightlife  in New York high society and Hollywood. His artwork was featured in prestigious publications with illustrations and cartoons, in the pages and on covers of Esquire, Colliers, Harpers, and The New Yorker. His glamorous style was influenced by German Expressionists.

Jaz Fabry's grandfather Alois Fabry Sr, had a long career as a Portrait Painter beginning in Slovakia, and later Paris and the Untied States. He immigrated to New York City in 1900. The permanent collection of the Slovak National Museum holds one of his oil portraits.

Jaz's new conceptual digital art series, "Lahaina Town Lost" -- expose the deserted Hawaiian tourist town he called home -- before the horrific firestorm terrorized this idyllic island paradise. This extreemly personal print series of historic Lahaina buildings - now destroyed by the fire - are digital collage prints, splashed with bold color fields of geometric planes overlaid on the structures now Lost Forever. His horror and grief over the devastation has motivated him to to work on creating a Benefit Exposition as a traveling Art Show in galleries across the United States and Europe to assist his community that lost friends, homes and jobs - who are now desperately struggling to rebuild their lives, families, homes and businesses.

Exhibitions in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Oakland, Minneapolis, Paris and Hawaii.
