CRESCENT CITY BREWPUB opening. april 11th, 2016

Bowieas a huge fan of David Bowie, you can imagine how depressed I was to find my Idol gone this past year.   In my sorrow, I painted a version of him titled BLACK STAR bone.    a mix of aladdin sane and bowie if he was a member of skinz n bonez.     We did a tribute for femme fatale with an aladdin sane styled makeup.   Long Live the Thin White Duke.

this show will be a mix of new and some old.   Most of my new work are 30 by 40 and I would like to post them here, but instead I will give you a link to look for yourself to buy online.

and over the next few days I will be adding lots to the fine art america site.  I love fine art america because you can order prints to be delivered.  You can even order pillows, shower curtains and beyond!    Stay Tuned

here’s a couple printed canvas works, and just to clarify the show, I will be showing with Rick Moore, Lana Guerra, and White Spider Photography.

Lana Guerra

“It took me four years to paint like Raphael, but a lifetime to paint like a child.” ~ Pablo Picasso

My painting style is very raw and in the moment, I do not plan out my work and even if I did they would be something
completely different in the end. When I look at art I want it to evoke moods or ideas not just be a pretty picture, so
I guess you could classify my art style to be Childlike Art Brut / Outsider Art. My artwork have been shown in galleries all over the US, Mexico, Canada, Turkey, and France. Right now you can find me live painting and selling original pieces in the French Quarter at Pirates Alley a few times a month and I ship worldwide from my online website and from my etsy shop. – Lana Guerra / Crude Things

Rick Moore is an avid music fan and live performance devotee who just happens to carry a camera. After 30+ years in the television post-production business, Rick retired and relocated to New Orleans to share (realize) his passion – photographing musicians in live performance. From the largest festivals to the most intimate clubs, Rick’s performance images capture the very essence of the players whose talents demonstrate the lovingly diverse rhythms of the New Orleans music scene.

White Spider Photography, is a gentleman by the name of “spidey” who I met during some of our Indian Moments with the Wild Tchoupitoulas.    He has a very distinct taste in photography and an eye for Urban Lifestyle Imagery.  I especially love it when he puts together posters and mirror imaging. as he certainly has an eye for catching yours….-11 -111-1

the event begins at five pm upstairs, til seven pm at the crescent city brewhouse located in the french quarter at 527 decatur street.
