In February 2019, Thomas Labarthe, aka TOMA-L, flew from France to New York City to create two exclusive collections on West 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. The movement, energy, and color of these two sold-out shows created here on West 8th Street mark the first exhibitions to be displayed at FREVO and the beginning of a close friendship with Thomas.
Now in 2022, after another sold-out show in Macadam Gallery in Brussels, TOMA-L is finally back in New York City with five pieces created exclusively for FREVO.
