Stormtrooper Snatching!

As many of you may know, this past weekend was Art Basel, an epic art show that takes over Miami.  The who's who of the art world were all there.  One of the most controvertial names in street art, Mr. Brainwash, had an installation on Collins Ave.  On the balconies of the outside of the building were wood cutouts of Stormtroopers.  An unknown assailant, snatched a stormtrooper in broad daylight and later went around Wynwood introducing his new friend, Abe Solomon.  Check out the video to see the snatching take place and Like Abraham Solomon on Facebook!

December Artist of the Month - Jean Hildebrant



Jean Hildebrant
I was born in a small town in Oregon and had no access to art classes. I taught myself how to draw and use pastels and oil, by studying art books that I found in the local library. It was exciting to see how the Old Masters and current artists painted portraits and figures and to read how they worked in different mediums. I have always been captivated by portraits and figurative work. My favorite subject is the human soul. I desire to capture the essence and inner beauty of the human spirit through the use of light and color. I want my paintings to speak to the emotions and spirit of each person who views them.
As a portrait painter, I desire to not only capture a good likeness of the subject but I want to find the uniqueness of the individual and convey that to the viewer. My hope is that my portraits will become something that families will treasure and pass on to future generations.
 I paint realism with the hope of leaving an indelible impression.
