Biography

Augustus Nazzaro (b. born 1984, East Islip, NY, USA) is an American artist that lives works in Brooklyn, NY.  Nazzaro makes virtuosic paintings that mimic the aesthetics of classified and potentially explosive media. His images of secret locations, hidden logos and masked documents are created with a laborious process of painting, sanding and repainting ad nauseam with precision detail. The effect is reminiscent of Xeroxed Zines, microfiche and infrared imaging, in other words, a visual language of subterfuge.
