I’ve known artist Clint Roth for a few years now; A super creative, fun person to be around. One of those people that kind of can’t help it but create, he’s constantly collaborating, painting, making music, building, you name it… Even though, he’s based here in Austin Tx. we don’t get to enjoy his art too often, and we’re solving that!
He started doing art a few years ago, while he was designing the album art for his band, Big Jaw… “It started me on a track of trying to find a way to make compelling pieces in the simplest terms by using symbols from nature and pop culture and combining these symbols with basic elements of design and a limited color palette. At most, I hope my work would evoke a story or a feeling or even just a question in the viewer’s mind. At least, I hope it’s fun to look at.”
A crowd pleaser for sure; Last year he was one of the artists that had more traffic at our studio, so you’ll see 😉
We’ll have his art in both studios November 18th & 19th, so make sure to take some time in your day to see it and enjoy a drink or two too!
Beverly Kemp is a unique Painter and Internet Sensation, people recognize her controversial & raw Art anywhere; Last year Bev and Gerardo Arellano were “Must See” EAST studio #6 by Do512‘s featuring an Ann Richards painting that brought a smile to everyone.
This year She’ll work again with #TheProjecto bringing new and not so new pieces to us!
Let me share you an excerpt of her bio that I love, and describes some of what you’ll see:
Reviewers and critics have described my work as ‘eye-popping’ and ‘Disney-fied.’ Yet, I find that my oils on canvas are more than screaming upside-down, inside-out point-of-view statements or cross-eyed observations of societal norms and women’s issues that shouldn’t be. As I age and wage an on-going battle with Parkinson’s disease, filling in another red dress comes easier and easier. Now, I know my paint is saying something. ❤
Hope You’re already convinced and drop by Studio #111!!!
You might know Clint Roth in one of his two facets: Musician as Big Jaw, or an Artist as himself ;P
I knew him through the music but ended up working a little bit more with his Art ❤
His style has been described as “Lowhighmiddlebrow Outsider Pop” (Don’t ask me, but totally haha), & one of the things I love about it is how versatile and just fun to see it is! It’s refreshing how simple, colorful and raw his pieces are. He’s used his art for Album covers, stickers, T-shirts and more, always translating perfectly into any medium.
- If you have the EAST Catalog, it’s his piece the one that represents The Projecto 😀
He’ll be displaying his Art and chatting with us at Studio #111, hope you can make it!
East Austin Studio Tour is almost here and The Projecto will bring great artists and a really fun Happening only on November 19th from 11AM-6PM save the date!!!
- Some of the Artists involved are: Clint Roth, Patricia Carrington, Carlos Olvera, Mauricio Frijoles., Adrian Oviedo, Greometria, Beverly Kemp & Saakred!. Also Feat. #ChidoMachine of course 😉

RECAP: Mark your calendars SATURDAY November 19th. For The Projecto Happening #111 on the Catalog!
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 😀
