Installed WordPress on my nexus 7, Hurray!

So today I lost my iPhone (was in wife’s car) and I was kinda lost with out it. But a realized that this thing was more than a reader and I am taking the time to use it to it’s full potential, or at least installing a backup set of apps. I even sketched an angry robot for this post.

Lost iphone, grrr

In the hospital

Baby Rocket is coming, maybe. In the hospital now. This is a dry run we may be going home soon.

“Doctor” wants to monitor the baby, mom is having lots of contractions and blood pressure is high. We may spend the night.

Little Pistol is with his Aunt and very excited to have sleepover. Special thanks to Aunt and Tata!

Coast to coast… Again!

ShowCloserJohn, Michi and Alex are working. The “Tenchu” painting is in john’s hands now, Michi has “The chicken lamp” and I am working on “skull 5”.

I would like you to understand how this process works. You may find it hard at first, but the short answer is we paint over and on each others work. This is something requiring a great deal of trust. Our process is as much a collaboration as it is a critic on the work itself  a commentary that carries with it a wet brush. So the painting passes from artist to artist each editing, celebrating, embellishing, and reinventing what was there before. The painting becomes something else.

In April 2008 Art Murmur, Los Angeles was pleased to present “COAST TO COAST BUTTER TOAST”. A show featuring new collaborative work by John Tindel, Michi and Alex Feliciano. The visual mash-up was a lively celebration bursting with texture and quick witted humor. And we are doing it again, With all new work, this time in Atlanta!! at Art Department Galleries.

The ONE is out!

one-gallery2_lgIt is here The ONE by Apogee Electronics.

“With ONE, you can record a single channel of audio using the specially tuned enclosure microphone, an instrument input for guitar, bass, or keyboard, or a world-class microphone preamp input. Listening with ONE is an entirely new experience as well. Hear your recordings and your iTunes library with incredible dimension and clarity through ONE’s studio-quality stereo output.”

It was an honor and privilege to work along side the marketing team that came up with this little honey. I know first hand how hard they work to bring products like this to the market. I wish them the best.

New Job!

Sparks Grove

After moving to Atlanta from LA I was worried that I would have trouble finding a good job. After a few interviews I really started to worry about the job market. Then I interviewed with the team at Sparks Grove, wow sweet. I will be posting goodies and samples soon.

I have also been given the green light from a previous project and I will be add the drawings to my portfolio.

New work, Painting with others!

feliciano, maxwell, michi, tindel, more


Feliciano is creating new works with Tindel, Michi, Maxwell and Kowalski, starting in 2004 when Michi and Tindel invited Feliciano to come and paint with them. In 2007 we started mailing canvases across the country from LA (Feliciano) to Atlanta (Tindel, Michi and Maxwell) this how the COAST TO COAST BUTTER TOAST show got started. April 2008 was the first show on the West coast. All five of us will regularly be showing work in Castleberry Hill, Atlanta’s historic arts district during the monthly Friday ArtStroll. Kowalski has put together a new space, MadMan Studios, above the Besharat Gallery at 175 Peters Street.

This is a flyer from the show.

The press release read:

Art Murmur Gallery is pleased to present “COAST TO COAST BUTTER TOAST”

- featuring new collaborative work by John Tindel, Michi and Alex Feliciano.

Fresh from the land of Dixie, Atlanta artists John Tindel and Michi come to Los Angeles to creatively team up with LA artist Alex Feliciano. The Atlanta pair bring with them their southern-fried “folk graffiti” style of painting. Feliciano's own painting style, though decidedly more surreal, is comparable with its graffiti-based origins. This visual mash-up promises to be a lively celebration bursting with texture and quick witted humor.

TindelMichi – “Two Fat Southern Boys That Paint”
John Tindel and Michi ("TindelMichi") have been dazzling fellow Atlantans with their collaborative paintings for the past few years. Like many residents of the south, these two proudly embrace their southern identity, often injecting regional humor and folklore into their colorful, multilayered canvases. This practice of infusing their paintings with a delicate sensitivity for southern culture adds an unpretentious quality to their work, yet the overall effect is indeed sophisticated. The artists cite artistic influences from Neo-Expressionism to contemporary Pop, and draw inspiration from urban hip-hop, free form jazz and poetry. TindelMichi’s collaborative method of working plays out less like a duel and more like a dialogue – a point, counterpoint that yields a delightful and refreshing result.

Alex Feliciano
Originally from Miami, Alex Feliciano moved to Atlanta in 2000, where he met John Tindel and Michi. Together with others, the group formed the artist collective “The Creative Life.” In 2004, Feliciano moved to Los Angeles, where he lives and works today. Alex Feliciano is largely a self taught artist, who at an early age became immersed in the burgeoning graffiti movement. He strongly believes in the purity and nuance gained from life drawing and painting, as opposed to working from photography or with the aid of computers. He continuously adds to his thousands of pages of sketchbooks, images from his own mind, as well as technical studies of his surrounding environment. The result is a fascinating mix of quirky, humorous imagery, based partly on reality and partly on Feliciano’s very active imagination. His paintings often depict bizarre characters engaging in strange leisure activities, and acting out curious and puzzling tableaus. This manner of creating lends an intriguing and deeply psychological undercurrent to much of his work.

Please join Art Murmur Gallery for this visually striking exhibition from three very talented young artists.

At Maxwell's studio in Atlanta.


The canvases below are some of the first painting to be shipped to Atlanta From Los Angeles.
