The Pulse Art Fair is one of the most exciting art fairs, and has managed to stay at The Metropolitan Pavilion.

Here are some of the talented artists that I encountered there:

Thomas  Broadbent is a local Brooklyn artist who is represented at The Front Room Gallery. His new work, titled “Spaceman,” is an iconic spirit of man floating in space, in which you can feel man’s loneliness and fragility. At his recent show, you can discover other space and moon paintings. He won the Pulse Award this year, which is truly amazing, and he is one of the best contemporary artists out there.


Nohra Haime Gallery, in midtown New York, represents many talented artists, but the one that caught my attention was a native of Rome, Nicola Bolla. His Black Panther sculpture has a very interesting texture to it. It may be surprising that not only is Nicola a painter and sculptor, but also a practicing ophthalmologist and eye surgeon. He divides his time between art and medicine. He uses swarovski crystals for his creations that reveal unique and timeless beauty. His work is a deep reflection of modern society and obsession with self-image beauty fashion. These twisted deformed images of humans are quite disturbing in an artistic way.


The Gallery Poulsen is a Dennmark based gallery that was showcasing some really wild New York artists. Christian Rex Van Minnen paints historic images that have a mutated, bloody gross feeling. Van Minnen’s paintings depict the genocide of the Native American and the seeds of racism and social injustice, with references to prisons and ghettos. His use of layers and layers of glaze, which take a long time to dry, is why he only turns out two paintings a month.


Well, I had my finger and eye on the best from Pulse Art Fair 2016! Can’t wait till next year!
