Gabriel Sanchez has always found a fascination with painting, but it wasn't until a couple of years ago that he started to paint landscape and abstract acrylic masterpieces. He finds his inspiration for his paintings through his love of nature and music.  

 

In addition to being an artist, Gabriel is a full time musician.  He tours nationally with his critically acclaimed tribute act The Prince Experience.  He can also be found performing locally as a solo artist and with various other projects. 

 

This Gallery shown in the image is Gabriel's debut collection at Nicole's Third Ward Social. Each one of a kind technique abstract painting is available for purchase from November 5th through the 29th.

ADRIAN SPINKS 
November 5th-November 29th 

Born and lived most of my life in the UK, more recently started to migrate to the USA and hope to be here full time next year sometime, in the meantime ill continue to travel back and forth.

Photography has been a hobby of mine on and off for most of my life, in my early school days developing black and white prints at lunchtime in a make shift darkroom. I had my first SLR as a teenager (still 35mm film in those days!) and I enjoyed experimenting with lighting, angles and exposures getting mixed results but good fun! Then transferred onto digital during the 90’s and have had a range of cameras…Pentax, Nikon, several Canons and most recently I have settled on Fuji as my camera of choice.

Originally I trained as a draughtsman in the old fashioned way using paper and pencils, this instilled in me a love of perspective hopefully this can be seen in some of my images.

I enjoy landscape photography and portraiture and have travelled extensively, currently I have visited 44 countries and hope to add another 2 or 3 next year, many of my images are from these travels.

I have been featured in exhibitions in London and across the UK also Paris, Louvre Museum and New York, Time Square (both digital exhibits) as well as various galleries and exhibitions here in Wisconsin.

COLIN EK 
January 7th - January 31st 

My name is Colin Ek. I was born and raised in Milwaukee Wisconsin. Growing up I remember being fascinated by graffiti writers and the tags that I would see around my city. Graffiti plays a huge role in my aesthetic when creating. In high school I started to dabble with spray paint and quickly found it to be one of my most comfortable mediums.

 

My spray paint canvases are quite abstract. I play around with stencil and tape for the backgrounds and then use sharpies or paint markers for the foreground. My artistic process is quite sporadic to say the least. Much of my work is created on a whim with no real plan or idea. I’ve come to realize that when I go into a piece with a plan in my head and a goal to create something conceptually sound it puts a huge damper on my creativity and the final product. 

Along with spray paint I dabble a lot in traditional illustration. For my illustration work I usually find myself drawing buildings that are influenced by the architecture I see in Milwaukee. Along with buildings I also find myself drawing weird little characters. 

In High School I had two amazing art teachers that really pushed me to look at my creations on a more serious level. I truly feel they are a big part of why I am the artist I am today. I remember constantly doodling in sketchbooks and drawing on canvas throughout the school day. It sounds cliche but art really became less of a hobby and more of an obsession/addiction. Post high school I continued creating. I never went on to art school and instead worked many monotonous jobs. In a way this helped me progress as an artist because I had an endless amount of free time to daydream about my art. 

Throughout the years I have accumulated a large collection of work. Once covid hit it gave me a lot of time to think about what I want to do next. I have done quite a few commissions but until now I haven’t really thought about showing my work in a public setting. My little apartment is filled with an endless sea of canvases and sketchbooks filled with illustrations that are ready to be shown to others. Admittedly showing my art to the public has always been daunting to me. Besides posting on social media I am honestly a hermit when it comes to showing my work to others. I think this art show will be a huge step out of my comfort zone but I think it will help me grow as an artist!
