Live Painting Word Art

La Liga Word Art; Barca ye Madrid

Enjoy these pieces of word art featuring teams from Spain's top soccer division, La Liga.  The  images are formed in the shape of the club crest, like a coat of arms or logo in the footballing world. The badge is much beloved or reviled deeming or your loyalty to a local club or national team and its colors.  The rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid, known as El Classico, is one of the most watched in terms of global tv audience, most complex rivalries in sports history, with layers of history and political influence far beyond the physical trophy cabinet or stadiums that house these footballing giants. Each image is created using the names of all the players in the 2017-18 first team rosters, respectively, and done by hand with dip pen and brush, using FW acrylic inks.

Group Show at the Studio620, January 19th

Come out this Friday, 1/19 from 6-9pm for the closing reception of a group show entitled, S.I.P.P.  The sharpie, ink, pen and pencil show put out an open call to local artists and my work as accepted.  Honestly can't think of a better way to start of the New Year with positive vibes by connecting with fellow creatives. 

A well attended opening happened on 1/13 as part of the second Saturday ArtWalk throughout downtown St. Pete, FL.  Four of my sports themed word art pieces were framed up and on display.  It was great evening meeting new friends and getting to talk with other artists about their process and work hanging on the walls.  Excited to have my TB Lighting art grouped up under the title of the show with other talented artist such as, left to right, Lupy and Jenny Jo Kosharek.  

Art will remain on display until February 3rd.  I have a total of four framed works, all originals, done with dip pen, brush and FW acrylic inks. The typography art on display are 2017-18 rosters for EPL teams Manchester United pictured below, Manchester City, Brighton Hove Albion FC and the NHL side Tampa Bay Lightning.  I have been working on more word art, club crests of Spain's top two teams, check back for updates.
