Description The background is a rainbow and the foreground has a tweed woolen brown suit with a silk shirt and actual fabric as a tie ina 3 dimensional fun and funny painting.The torso only which really accentuates the idea of FASHION STATEMENT.Humorous, iventive and thought provoking, this oil/acrylic/fabric painting pokes fun at our imagination and stimulates a curious appreciation for the subtle structure of any gentleman's presentation. Made as a fun gag for a restaurant in the NYC Fashion District, it has also been actually used as a surreal garment by the artist and garnered countless compliments and giggles.
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....
