This last Saturday the 21st I had the pleasure of witnessing my good friend and awesome Artist Gerardo Arellano receive the “Emerging Artist” award at the Mexican American Cultural Center‘s Awards of Excellence here in Austin, Tx.
Ever since I had the pleasure to meet this amazing artist, I’ve been blessed to witness how he’s grown and kick ass repeatedly with/without help and at times with a bunch of obstacles. He has persevered and is now very active and well known not only as a painter, but as a musician, PR machine, Dance Lord and basically a local celebrity!
Who would have thought that the friend of my friend that was basically my first contact here in Austin Tx ended up to be one of my favorite artists a great contact and one of my rocks here in the States. I feel very lucky to be your friend and to have crazy awesome pieces of your art!
Check his amazing work at his website or Instagram! He’s constantly working all over town so I’m sure you’ll recognize it whenever you’re wondering around; if you’re lucky you can even catch him dancing or playing the accordion on the East Side!.
Cheers Gerardo, keep’em coming, you very well deserve this and much much more 😀
Vote Vote Vote Vo Vo Vote Vote Vote (In “I like to move, it move it” rhythm).
It’s so so important, go ahead and do it, DREAM! It doesn’t matter how crazy you think it is, go for it!
May the good ones win!
4 BIG meetings today, 4 really good projects that might see the light soon.
It’s so cool to dream and project in life. Do it as often as you can; even if nothing gets done, you practiced, structured and viewed your potential on a specific task, I definitely recommend it!
I don’t know if things will get done, I just know that I’m happy putting my talents, time and experience to work.
Thank you for staying there, I’m very excited to see these projects grow. Hopefully I’ll be able to present good content for everyone. Yayyy!
Stay in touch, I’d love to hear from you and make stuff happen 🙂
