There’s a new artist who’s currently rising in the scene and creating a name for herself out of Brooklyn New York. She goes by the name of Verna Fogg. Verna isn’t your typical “Pop Artist.” Most would assume that she’s a singer, but in this case, we talking about “Popular Art”, which would come in the form of paintings and canvas.
Verna began her journey as a full time artist back in 2015, when she decided to resign from her job and go full time, although her company V F Artist Inc. wasn’t officially established until 2016. As of now her focus is on creating mixed media paintings, and 3D canvas for her clients, “My goal is for the buyer to think outside the box and tap into their imagination when they see my work. I want them to close their eyes and try to become one with the painting while imagining that they are actually in the painting”, says Verna.
Some of her influence stems from a Pop Artist from the 1980s named Tom Wesselman. He’s currently her favorite Pop Artist to date. Pop Art is the expression of popular or mass culture. This plays a big role while creating mixed media paintings and 3D canvases for clients, “Mixed Media Art is all about breaking the boundaries between different art forms. No limitations and no restrictions. You can create whatever you want because YOU ARE THE ARTIST. Art helps us humans understand that it is relatable. It is an expression of our experiences, our most personal thoughts, and feelings. Art allows us to see the world in a whole new way”, says Verna.
Verna definitely seems to be on the right track when it comes to turning your passion into a business. Make sure to follow her on all social media platforms @vernafoggartist in order to stay up to date with all future art projects, events, and sales taking place in the future.
