Back in the day…before we were The Museum of UnCut Funk, we were Eclectic Connection Fine Art Gallery. We sold African Art, Animation Art, Black Fine Art, Contemporary Fine Art and provided archival custom framing. We dabbled in art auctions and did a lot of on site art consultation with our private and corporate clients. Clearly, we love art and culture. Now we have taken this passion to a different place and a different level! Right On!!!
The purpose of Aesthetic Grooves is to give up and coming artists a platform to exhibit their work. In pursuing this endeavour, I have met several artists whose work I like. Lana Andrade’s comic strips and watercolors fall into this category. They are funny and to the point and her water color art is hip, kool and sexy. I hope you do too! Check out her blog page. You can also find additional drawings on her facebook page.
Today, Collectors Quest visited The Museum of UnCut Funk to do a video shoot for their website. It was an awesome experience. Our collection will be showcased on one of the premiere collector community websites in the country.
I met Jerome Walford at the Bronx Heroes Comic Con and ran into him again at the East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention (ECBACC), where we discussed his Nowhere Man character. I then spent some time on his website and I knew that I wanted to share his work with our visitors. I think you will really enjoy getting to know Jerome and Nowhere Man.
