Early 1990s Painting on Paper by the Group Artfux

About

A wonderful graphic painting done by the group of six collaborative artists who organized this group in 1990. They worked with quite a few graffiti artists including Ron English. A brief description of the group is from one of the founders website Ray Arcadio, please be sure to visit his website as well; Artdux Artfux was an art group based out of Jersey City, New Jersey. Their birthdate established as October 31, 1990. Zeitgeist (or Spirit of the Age), burned bright and strong in the six-chambered heart of the ARTFUX. The ARTFUX founders and team of artists were Ray Arcadio, Orlando Cuevas, Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada, Mirta C. Del Valle, Tony DiRobertis and John Santerineross. They were the pioneers of Culture Jamming, the practice of parodying ads and hijacking billboards to drastically alter their messages. They also pushed the boundaries of collaborative art making, where artworks were created by two or more of the members, sometimes the entire group. They developed street and gallery performances that received international coverage. The most famous being "The Trial of Senator Jesse Helms" performed on the steps of Capitol Hill. Artfux also created numerous posters that received international acclaim for their design and message. They also appeared on the Jerry Springer show and were featured on a PBS documenary. Their most famous motto was "Art Pushes, Art Provokes, Artfux!".
