Nov. 2nd 7pm - “Daydreams” - Artwork by MJ Lindo - Opening Reception
"Daydreams" - Artwork by MJ Lindo - Opening Reception
Nov 2nd. 7pm - RSVP on Facebook
MJ Lindo's artworks translate a story thru imagery and subliminal messaging using animals and motifs. They are stories told thru the expressions of her womens faces and thru the suggested motifs used in her paintings. While her art evokes emotion and wonder it often shares insight into a contemporary women's story. It is up to the observer to put the pieces together of the story or emotion. MJ often works with a wooden canvas which ads a sort of strength and dimension to her paintings. It often leaves us with a feeling of transparency in her subjects.
MJ’s women are often seen to have hair that is illustrated in a way that ads movement to her paintings. It is a trait carried thru her work that allows our eyes to move along the painting.

Friday July 26th - 6pm: “When I Was A Kid” Book Signing with Boey
"When I Was A Kid" Book Signing with Boey
Friday July 26th - 6pm RSVP on facebook
Meet Malaysian artist & cartoons author of the recently published “When I Was A Kid”
"A graphic novel without pretension, When I Was a Kid is a collection of black and white drawings and handwritten narratives that depict short stories from a kid’s formative years growing up in Malaysia — stories of surviving school, siblings, and parents — when the world was indeed, seen as simply black and white.
Dedicated to the forgotten child in all of us, these tales of imaginary heroes, lies adults like to tell children, and the dangerous mix of boredom with curiosity appeal to anyone who might long for a more innocent time when, as little kids, we all had stories we promised never to tell our parents.
Boey is a Malaysian animator, artist, author, and TED Award recipient who is best known for his art on foam cups. For many years, he has entertained a handful of readers with good taste through his daily blog (www.iamboey.com) — he still does. But in an alternate universe, he is a doctor, a man of science, a father, a teacher, a lover and much, much more. He wrote this himself, and he knows that it is pretentious. Yes.”
