Artist Baron Von Fancy Uses Signature Airbush Font For #GenerationBombshell

New York City-based artist Baron Von Fancy’s work has most likely caught your eye before. And this summer, his famous airbrushed font drew even more attention plastered on a very large billboard in SoHo. “On My Way to Steal Your Girl” it read, grabbing the attention of those hustling and bustling through the streets of NYC. From collaborations with brands such as The Reformation, Urban Outfitters and Juicy Couture (to name just a few), to more billboards and even more art gallery showings, Baron Von Fancy is make making waves in the Downtown New York art world. That’s why we just had to get that Baron Von Fancy signature airbrush on Galore’s #Generation Bombshell covers featuring Kylie Jenner and Zendaya. From covers to collaborations, we chatted with Baron about art, icons and what we can expect from him this year.

Why art?

It is one of the few things to ever keep me satisfied.

What’s your favorite quote of all time?

“The honeymoon is over.” or “F*ck it before it f*cks you.”

If you could collaborate with one artist, who would it be and why?

This is a softball answer, but sincerely Ed Ruscha. His work has always been my favorite.

What’s your favorite color?

I’m too fickle for just one, but ‘Indian Yellow’ has got me going today.

What makes someone iconic?

My icons are people that truly inspire me through their work and actions. People that when I think of them make me say, “WOW.” People that turn water into wine.

Disney or Looney Tunes?

This is so hard, but Disney all day.

Jessica Rabbit versus Minnie Mouse?

Why versus? I’ll have both.

What is next for Baron Von Fancy this year?

Hopefully, a bunch more shows and I have a lot of amazing collaborations coming out.
