Van's Bespoke Showcase
I was one of twelve artist selected by Fosters to customize a pair of all white vans. The custom vans were silent auctioned at the end of the night. All proceedes went to the Upbeat Academy Foundation, a non-profit organization, providing underprivileged, at-risk children with an opportunity to learn how to produce and perform electronic dance music and hip-hop. My colaborating team came up with this dope shoe concept. We used the Kanye West X Louis Vuitton Jaspers shoe concept and collabed it with high top Vans. At the end of the night I had the highest biding shoe at the event. I had a great experience being apart of this event and would love to do it again!
Rizzuto Restorante & Chop House
Rizzuto's Ristorante & Chop House is a fine dinning restaurant in New Orleans. They serve tender steaks and authentic Italian style food. I had the privilege to make all of the art for the restaurant! There are two small dinning areas called the Frankie and Dean room, where my Dean Martin collage is located. In the Pygmalion room, a room that showcases the history of the Pygmalion parade, all the signature floats are are painted and framed on display. Also in the bathrooms two modern styled gold paintings are hanging up. Go check it out for yourself! take a picture with my artwork and tag me!
Gendusa's italian market
Gendusa's Italian Market is a family owned business in River Town. They are known for their deliciously, over sized portions of Italian food. I never go home hungry after eating there! My Mom and I partnered up to paint the inside of Gendusa's main dinning room. Faux brick walls and window styled paintings are through out the restaurant. The Party room is painted as if the guest are seated on a porch in Italy, over looking the Italian scenary. I painted what is shown in the slide show.
RAW ARTIST OVATION
My very first art show where I was able to showcase my artwork! It was such a great experience and I can't wait to do it again! RAW's mission is to serve independent artists with tools, resources, education and exposure needed to thrive and succeed in their creative careers. The show was so diverse in art. It was awesome to see all the artist come together to put on one big art show for our guest. If you didn't get the chance to go, be on the look out for another RawArtist Show.
The Library New Orleans
The Library is a cozy bar in Uptown New Orleans. They not only have the library atmosphere, they also have a large variety of drinks to offer. From fancy Bloody Marys to beer on tap, they got you covered. All the book worms can't resist this place for a relaxing night out. I had the privilege of painting the bookcases in the upstairs bar. It really gave the space an authentic feel. Go see for yourself!
This was my second time being apart of the RAW Artist showcase. RAW's mission is to serve independent artists with tools, resources, education and exposure needed to thrive and succeed in their creative careers. It was another successful event! This event was tons of fun with live performances going on throughout the whole night! It's always a great time at the RAWArtist events. Until next year!
