Skylar Fein brings together his Pop sensibility and political conscience in two- and three-dimensional works that incorporate found materials such as comic book imagery and items gathered off the streets of New Orleans; he often pays tribute to forms of nonviolent resistance, including punk music and graffiti. Fein began his career at the age of 37 after moving to New Orleans just six weeks before Hurricane Katrina engulfed the city, and he first gained recognition with Remember the Upstairs Lounge (2008), a multimedia installation piece that recreated a New Orleans gay bar burned down in 1973 in a fire, killing 32 patrons and injuring dozens more. Fein has also recreated some of the Irish writer Samuel Beckett’s spy-craft-coded telegrams, which he sent and received when he was living in Paris as the Nazis were apprehending his Jewish friends. On Beckett, Fein has said, “In our current climate of a visual art eviscerated of any moral force or clarity, I take what courage I can from his pitiless unapology.”
