We have created a painting for Allied Forces currently on display at Modern Eden Gallery in San Fransisco. The painting is titled “Chet Bizarre”, an homage to Chet Zar.

Modern Eden Gallery is pleased to announce “Allied Forces: A Collaborative Group Show”. Allied Forces presents pairings of artists working together to create a unique work of collaboration and cooperation. This show will bring a unique glimpse into the artistic process, stylistic comparisons, and the exciting aspect of working together to create beautiful imagery. Collaboration—or joint production by two or more artists—is a common style among musicians and performance artists. It has not been as popular in the world of art, and especially in modern art. But the strong sense of individualism long possessed by artists of fine art is being set aside for this dynamic group show. They are working on pieces that engage each other, creating something more unique and surprising than a work created by individual artists alone.
