For Rick Caballo, his art is all about people who have an interesting story, and on Saturday, April 1st at The Factory at Franklin in Franklin, Tennessee, Rick will be showcasing his latest works of art available in originals and signed reprints… and invites you to be a part of and view these stories firsthand.
Nashville Lifestyles Magazine heard the news that Rick will be displaying his artwork at The Factory at Franklin, in the Willow Plunge Arts Gallery, and he is the current feature in this month's issue for their Artisan Spotlight… Giving us a glimpse into the ultra creative mind of a true Renaissance Man, whose passion and skill set in several art forms such as painting, photography, graphic and fashion design, is capable of building several national and international brands from top to bottom, A to Z.
Rick has designed logos and built websites for several brands and celebrities such as Label Executive and Record Producer, Tony Brown; Billboard's #1 Entertainment Attorney of the Year, John Mason and Steven Tyler's solo band, Loving Mary Band. His art, fashion and graphic design work has also launched several Brands across Australia and the U.S.A… like the entire Calvary Fashion line by Jep Robertson from A&E's Duck Dynasty and Colt Ford's Slinger Apparel brand.
While talented and skilled in many artistic mediums, painting is Rick's first love. He's been designing and scratching out artwork since he was kid. Rick has painted several celebrity portraits and his unique airbrush technique caught the attention of legendary rock and roller, Steven Tyler, who personally posed for Rick's piece, titled "Jaded" that will be on display at this Art Show for the first time ever.
As a brand builder, fashion designer, graphic design guru, artist, photographer and songwriter, Rick's work is sought out all across world… And also happening this month, the Graphic Design, Fashion and Photography students at The Art Institute of Nashville will be able to hear straight from Rick himself as he will present as a Keynote Speaker to all of their Creative-Design departments.
This one night only special event also features local Nashville artist, Ryan McCauley. Ryan is a visual artist based in East Nashville and is most widely known for his 'Robots Never Sleep' series. Well versed in a wide variety of creative outlets including, painting, performance art, print making, muralism, photography, typography, street art and traditional graffiti, Ryan has remained a staple of the Nashville arts scene since introducing the city to the Robots Never Sleep moniker in 2010. "I'm excited to guide people through the "Robospectrum". This new series will take you on a monochromatic journey into the heart of the American Dream.", says McCauley.
Duo Sudeste, Nashville based classical guitar duo made up of Robert Thompson and Joey Butler, merge their love of Latin guitar music, classical guitar training, and knowledge of Latin rhythms, and will be performing as the musical guest for the art exhibit.
Complimentary cocktails will be provided by Mighty Swell Sparkling Cocktails. The Austin based company wanted to utilize the unique fruit-based wine that makes Mighty Swell Sparkling Cocktails different and gluten free. They also wanted to be proud to list the ingredients on the can — so you won't find any high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavors in your drink while you soak in the art and music of the night.
