Pop art innovator Charles Fazzino paints in Stamford

Pop art innovator Charles Fazzino spent an afternoon in August painting a signal box on Summer Street in Stamford.

Fazzino, who is known for 3-D renderings of New York and countless other cities, painted the signal box in bright colors and vibrant details in his collage-like depiction of Stamford.

A graduate of the New York School of Visual Arts, Fazzino also has gained fame for his artistic tributes to such popular icons as The New York Yankees, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Alfred Hitchcock and the characters of Walt Disney.

The signal box is located outside Riviera Maya at 20 Summer St., Stamford.
