Just breaking on to the poster art scene this year, Denver artist Franky Scaglione, rediscovers the fusion of his longtime connection to the Phish community and his passion for creating art. Scaglione has contributed shirt designs and stickers to the lot scene for years, but has recently found his niche in fine art screenprints.
Scaglione completed his BFA in Media Arts at State University of New York (Fredonia) in 2002, and escaped the bitter cold of western NY for the mountains and sunshine of Colorful Colorado. Shortly after the move, he found himself teaching art in an inner-city middle school; it was the perfect gig, allowing him to feel out the teaching world while keeping the summers off for Phish tour. Within three years, Scaglione earned his MA at the University of Denver and began teaching high school art. This is what he loves and is still doing today.
Teaching drawing, painting, and printmaking allows Scaglione to constantly research and experiment with new media and approaches. Six years into his teaching career, he finds himself more inspired than ever before.
Look for his new release, Magic City Binge, to accompany Phish’s four-night run in Miami. Stop by his booth at Mock Show: EPIC NYE to say hello and check out his work.
