Erik Brunetti (born 5 May 1967) is an American artist, designer, director and founder of lifestyle and clothing brand FUCT.

Career[edit]

Brunetti's installation “Lost” was first exhibited in 1996 at OK Harris Gallery in New York City.[1] It was part of a solo exhibition, titled "Adaption from lost animal poster flyers". Brunetti also exhibited his work in a 1998 group show titled "Channel 3" at Team Gallery in New York alongside Tracey Emin, Jaime Levy and Pedro Ortuno.

Brunetti was invited to re-create this piece as part the 2011 MOCA Los Angeles "Art In The Streets" exhibition[2] by curators Jeffrey Deitch and Aaron Rose, who apperceived the installation as a generator of interesting dialogue about street art and its colloquial impression...

His first feature directorial work was The Doctrine, a series of short movies used as commercials for his brand FUCT, which he directed, produced and scored.[3] The Doctrine, part II, features Esther De Jong.

Early life[edit]

Erik Brunetti was born in Phillipsburg, New Jersey, May 5, 1967. He is of German-Italian descent. He first started writing graffiti in the mid-1980s as DEN ONE.[4]

Political Views[edit]

Brunetti has been known for candidly discussing his intellectual and political views.[5] His most recent interviews depict his criticism of the foreign policy of the United States and other governments.[6] Brunetti's outspokenness translates directly into his design aesthetic as well as in his fine art & films.

Record production[edit]

Brunetti played in the band Lucifer Wong with guitarist Patrick Sugg, bassist Steve Hanson, guitarist Antonio Ortiz and Drummer Stevie DRT. Brunetti produced the 2004 LP by garage rock band The Superbees under his record label Sonic Fever Records.[7]
