UNO’s Beach Party Installation, 2017 LA Art Show

Before I tell you about my Spring lineup, I thought I’d take one more look back at my LA Art Show installation in January. UNO’s Beach Party was seen by over 70,000 people during the run of the fair. It was tons of fun but also exhausting, so now that I’ve caught my breath, please join me at these upcoming shows…

Many thanks to Mat Gleason for the May 1 interview on his Modern Art Blitz show. The show was streamed live and is now in the Dromebox archives in case you didn’t catch it. Also available on YouTube, it’s continuing to get lots of hits.

And thanks also to So Scottsdale magazine and to Nicole Royse for featuring me in the “Scottsdale Now” section of their June issue, available in print and online!

Phoenix Magazine shines the spotlight on me in their April 2016 Issue

It could go to my head being referred to as “Original Hepcat and Artist-Entrepreneur.” What a great spotlight spread from Phoenix Magazine! Marilyn Hawkes, writer, did a masterful job of summing up my life in five paragraphs and photographer Michael Woodall (pictured here with assistant Natasha Mishana) got such a fantastic close-up of me and my work!

Many thanks to Managing Editor Niki D’Andrea and the crew at Phoenix Magazine for consistently turning out one of the most relevant city magazines in publication.

Pigment & Power | Fred Tieken & Michael Flechtner

Pigment & Power | Fred Tieken & Michael Flechtner

First Friday in February, I’ll be back in Phoenix with friend and fellow artist Michael Flechtner to light up the walls of Chartreuse Contemporary Art Space on historic Grand Avenue with our show entitled Pigment & Power. I’ve been working around the clock to finish a collection of new works for this show. Like myself, Michael, who lives in Los Angeles, uses language and pop imagery to reflect contemporary culture, but he uses 3-dimensional neon instead of paint. It’s going to be a great show! Many thanks to Nancy Hill and Mike Oleskow of Chartreuse who have given me some of my most memorable shows over the years.

February 5 – 25, 2016, Opening Reception, Friday, February 5, 2016, 6pm to 10pm.

Artist Reception, Friday, February 19, 2016, 6pm to 10pm, Chartreuse Contemporary Art Space
