Title of Exhibition

A Study in Sartor

Exhibition Summary.

A Study in Sartor is a performative gallery exhibition featuring the Men’s Fashion Painting of Sunflowerman. See the fashion illustrations he has been creating while living on the road and around the world for the past 5 years. Then stay for the paintings he is creating live at Fort Works Art.

The Exhibition will evolve as Sunflowerman paints live in-gallery each day. After three weeks of live painting the full exhibition will be complete.

Exhibition Objectives.

Artist Statement

Sunflowerman is a Men’s Fashion and Lifestyle painter. Painting for boutiques, brands and live events.

As a child he was shy. Art was his mechanism for human interaction. He would draw and be noticed. Painting fashion is a continuation of that mechanism. Style is art and people notice.

As a professional, Sunflowerman has been living on the road for the last 5 years painting in England, France, Italy, Croatia, Switzerland, Greece and Malaysia as well as across the United States.
