Horacio Tin Can Maps

 

a message from Horacio Sanchez Fantino

    “We are very proud to announce the Opening of Sanchez Fantino’s exhibition “Tin Can Maps” on November 6, 2014 at the Consulate of Argentina,  12 West 56 Street, New York.
    We also wish to offer you the opportunity to commission a work from Sanchez Fantino. These custom projects are based on a map or aerial view of the place you would like turned into a “Tin Cans Map,” the dimensions to be determined by your space requirements. The completed work will be delivered by the artist when he comes to New York in November. As we have shipping space available, the artist will bear the shipping costs; this will not affect the selling price. In order to produce the commissioned work on time, please send the base map to be used to Sanchez Fantino by the end of July, 2014.
    If you would like to learn more about this opportunity and the work of Sanchez Fantino, please contact sanchezfantino@gmail.com orpaulamikulan@gmail.com
    We look forward to hearing from you.”

“Smoke Gets in Your Eyes”

In Smoke Gets in Your Eyes the female figure hides behind the towers of smoke as the male figures look on. The image may call to mind the tears that are implied in the title.
