Tonight, October 18, from 6PM to 9PM, Bold Hype in NYC will be opening 35MM, Phil Noto's new motion picture themed solo show. As you can tell from the looks of the work, Phil is heavily influenced by 60?s and 70?s art and fashion. Sleek female figures, text, and retro design elements are a trademark of his paintings.
Born in 1971, Phil Noto grew up in Florida and attended the Ringling School of Art and Design. After college he began a career in animation at Walt Disney Feature Animation. During his 10 year career at Disney he worked on such films as The Lion King, Pocahontas, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Mulan, and Lilo and Stitch.
