Heather Lee Fazzino
Crook Couture

[ CR'OO-K ] (n): THOSE WHO LIVE A DIRTY LIFE OF GLAMOUR AND FAME

Heather Lee Fazzino is poised to join her famous father, 3D pop artist Charles Fazzino, among the ranks of her generation’s most influential artists. Born in 1990, Heather has always had a deep sense of artistic style and a love of fashion. She has since combined the two loves into one, launching her latest line of art-inspired canvases, apparel, and furniture titled “Crook Couture.”

Heather Lee began painting at the age of seven and made her artistic debut at the age of ten at The New York International Art Expo. She exhibited a series of both original paintings and limited edition giclees, informed in style not only by her famous father, but by The Masters – Matisse, Van Gogh, and Picasso. The series featured colorful renderings of many of her favorite places including Paris, California, and New York.

Throughout her teen years, Heather Lee continued to paint, experimenting with color, medium, and technique, slowly developing the very distinct style of today’s “Crook Couture” line. Edgy, yet sophisticated and full of flair, Heather Lee’s paintings are inspired by her exploration of Japanese Rinpa – a highly decorative and important school of Japanese painting originally developed in the 17th century.

Full of balance, and seemingly tribal in feel and origin, Heather Lee’s designs reflect the pathos of much of today’s youth – a fierce, almost primitive need to express emotion combined with a free-flowing and intricate sensitivity. Contemporary at their core, yet reminiscent of the ancient arts, Heather Lee’s work evokes a strong emotional response, combining the tribal feel of Keith Haring with the simplistic iconic imagery of Romero Britto or Takashi Murakami.

At an early age, Heather Lee has succeeded in creating an innovative and self-defining method, adaptable to a wide variety of themes and applications. Her approach has been compared to “doodling gone haywire” by viewers who study her works in an effort to visualize the objects and ideas being conveyed, as they are not always immediately apparent. Besides works on canvas, collectors can find Heather Lee’s art on high-quality apparel , and on fine crafted wood furniture including dressers, cocktail tables, and console tables.
