The OT Circus is thrilled to present “Ends Meet” – A One Night Pop Up Art Event featuring the works of (Joeseph)Arnoux and (Chris) Pecos. The exhibit will give viewers colorful and meaningful insight of the plight of the “starving artist” and how these artists make ends meet to get through life.
(Joeseph) Arnoux – piikani (Blackfeet) / sp’q’n’i? (Spokane) –
Was born in Spokane Washington and relocated in his youth to Holland, Michigan. He spent his adolescence in foster care with his two siblings, until emancipated. He is is enrolled in the Piikani (Blackfeet Nation) of NW Montana from his father’s side. He also has sp’q’n’i? (Spokane Tribe) lineage from his mother, located in eastern Washington. Arnoux attended the Insitute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe and CNM in Albuquerque, NM, studying Studio/Fine Arts. He currently resides in Albuquerque, where he steadily practices his artistic craft, most recently, and notaly, being comissioned to paint murals in the Nativo Lodge, and right here, at the OT Circus with Lynnette Haozous.
(Chris)Pecos is a 30 year old creator of art and dance. He has been using spray paint to create art for about 13 years, and has known about, and been influenced by hip hop since his Elementary School days. To him, using a can of paint is a lot like dancing to one of your favorite songs. “Flow and style for days!” Pecos feels lucky to have lots of amazing influence in the real hip hop community, and is very thankful for everything in regards to that.
Both these local artists have distinct styles, with colorful, cultural, and societal influences apparent in their works. Come feast your eyes on the myriad of works on canvas, wood, skate decks, and vinyl records. Light refreshments will be served.
