    Exit Through the Gift Shop
    When British stencil artist Banksy traveled to Los Angeles to work, he came across obscure French filmmaker Thierry Guetta and his badly organized collection of videotapes involving the activities of graffiti artists. Inspired, Banksy assembled them with new footage to create this talked-about documentary, and the result is a mind-boggling and odd film (so strange as to be thought a hoax by some) about outsider artists and the definition of art itself.

Featured Artist Friday: Miguel Eduardo Medrano

We’ll now be featuring a different artist every Friday. Each week, we’ll introduce you to some wonderful fine artists--working on a range of subjects, in a variety of media. We’ll begin with some artists from our own backyard--here in southern California.

Miguel Eduardo MedranoMiguel Eduardo Medrano is an incredible painter--who works primarily in oils and has a remarkable sense of color and design. Eduardo (as he prefers to be called by his friends) was born in Argentina, in 1944. He’s an architect and primarily self-taught painter--who has now workshopped with me for a couple of years. In his own words:

"I started drawing and painting while still in school, and continued to pursue this passion while studying architecture. Throughout my professional career, I kept up with my love of painting. To supplement my self-taught knowledge and skills, I participated in some workshops, competitions and exhibitions. My goal with my paintings is to transform my subject matter into a plastic language. My landscapes are where life is art, and the landscape is a state of  the soul, which lies in the soft echo of a painting."
