Description Sean Lennon leading john & Yoko (1975-80) through the Sea of Life,Was painted in homage on Dec. 8, 2010, a date when folks gather from around the world and sing all day long Beatle/John songs at Strawberry Fields, 72st NYC Central Park by the Dakota where he lived and was shot on that fate ful day in 1980....the world meditated for ten minutes of silence that Sunday and the Rock worlds main man of Peace was gunned down by a RAYGUN assassin to usher in a NWO era of war. He allowed himself to be led by innocence and a baby's beautiful reality, shunning the public eye to focus on the private joys of home life.A story of sweet surrender to the marvelous magic of the new generation/creation.
FRANK CRAVEN, New York City Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement I was born in NYC but grew up in Hidden Hills California (with a horse and pony)
1968 MLK/RFK shot Vietnam etc. My folks took me and sis (Patricia) from the top of Ireland to the bottom of Portugal and settled in Barcelona Spain.
There I studied art with Kieth Patterson and worked alongside the Catalan
artists Carles Briega Bonbon and Salvador Dali to find my own paradigm and school of thought.
I have exhibited at The American Institute of Barcelona and various other galleries,
restaurants, discos and yoga centers...painting wall murals and cielings.
I re-live my italian renaissance lifetime as church muralist and take it to the next level as an ongoing intergalactic ambassador gridding the planet with light and introducing the new merkaba spin, healing mandala art work for hospitals and individuals. Ofcourse I have canvases and sketchpads full of fascinating stories that answer my query about life and the life in between our Earthwalks.
I do not do art, art does me...suddenly I am attacked and find myself in a zone that relinquishes common sense duties, so I don't worry about marketing or professional politics - I make money as an actor, writer, musician and sometimes as an artist but I can only paint when my muse(s) crank a swift kick in my butt. Art does me, I don't do art....
