In February 2019, Thomas Labarthe, aka TOMA-L, flew from France to New York City to create two exclusive collections on W 8th Street on what was soon to be FREVO.
The gallery space was raw, and the wall that separates it from the restaurant did not exist during a five-month renovation. While the restaurant came together, TOMA-L made the art gallery his workshop. The floor was stained with paint, the original brick wall of the building was still showing, and a stainless-steel table with all his painting material stood in the middle of the room. These two sold-out shows created here on W 8th Street mark the first art exhibitions at FREVO and the beginning of a close friendship with Thomas.
Now in 2022, after a sold-out show in Macadam Gallery in Brussels, TOMA-L is finally back in New York City with five pieces created exclusively for FREVO.
Tuesday – Saturday 6 PM – 10 PM (or by appointment)
Due to the success of the recently sold-out March – June exhibition, FREVO has invited TOMA-L to extend his presence on W 8th Street until August 2022 with an exclusive new collection.
