“Inspirations” Series

My latest series “Inspirations”  is a take on fine art movements that have influenced me as an artist.  These art movements include Abstract, Pop Art, Surrealism, Fauvism, Op Art and De Stijl.  I created 6 different works of art in these styles.  Not only did I create these beautiful works of art, but when finished I ripped them apart.  I know, it sounds crazy… and for the most part, is was.  The finished paintings turned out to be ground breaking and awesome.

“The Magic of Mickey” Custom Painting

This piece was a very difficult piece to create.  It wasn’t the painting part that was difficult. It was trying to grasp my hand around creating a painting based around such an iconic figure like Mickey Mouse.  I decided to create this piece with the intent of celebrating Walt Disney and his ground breaking cartoons.  “The Magic of Mickey” turned out to be a very successful custom painting.

 

“New Skin” Mega Munny Statue for Tomodachi

 

“New Skin” Mega Munny is a large vinyl statue.  The owner of Tomodachi in the Roseville Center is a unique store specializing in toys, anime and pop art!  This was a very fun project for me as I got to expand my art style and think even more outside the box than I usually do.  He is on display at the Tomodachi store in the Roseville Center

ST. PAUL ART CRAWL

Through Sunday: Why do one-stop shopping when this weekend you can climb thousands of stairs, crowd into fun freight elevators, roam through hundreds of artist studios sprawled all over St. Paul and find just that perfect one-of-a-kind treasure? Who knows, it may even fit over the sofa. Such are the pleasures of the St. Paul Art Crawl. And besides the myriad painters, potters, glass artists, leather workers, photographers and other talents, there will be performances — piano, folk guitar, magic, new music, hip-hop, New Orleans brass — and food, and art cars. Don’t forget the art cars. Shane Anderson is the wild guy responsible for the exuberant cartoon heads shown here. All this on the streets, in cafes and in 250 artists’ studios sprawled from Lowertown to Raymond Avenue, and anywhere artists might hang out. Which is pretty much all over. So grab your wallet and go.

  • 6-10 p.m. Fri 10/7., noon-8 p.m. Sat 10/8., noon-5 p.m. Sun 10/9.
