3 artist spotlight: fly lady di
This weekend I found an artist by the name of Fly Lady Di while surfing new blogs... and fell in love! This woman can truly be called a "hip hop renaissance artist". She parlayed her classical dance training into a successful career as a dancer for artist from Fabulous and Tweet to Ashlee Simpson and Fall Out Boy. And now she has translated her amazing skills as an acrylic painter into the performance art of live painting. Her work is graphic, bold and colorful and completely articulates her love of all things "punky" and hiphop. Each piece delivers her emotion and simultaneously evokes a response from the viewer. You can definitely see her influences from art deco with the intricate details and graffiti artist with the vibrant colors.
Plus, you have to love her style... the quirky glasses, the b-girl outfits and such. She's too cute!
