Preview: “World on Fire” Grammy Art Show

In honor of the Grammy’s, Feb 2nd through the 8th, Shooting Gallery along with Kris Lewis and help from Will.I.Am bring a group show entitled “World on Fire”. The show features portraits of big name music stars painted by 20-25 of some of the best artists in the “Lowbrow” scene. The works and prints that re sold at the show will help to benefit the Pea Pod Foundation. A few sites have talked about this show, and Arrested Motion just posted a preview of some of the works that will be on view, and from what I have seen so far this show is going to not only help out a great foundation but bring the fans some killer artwork.

The show will feature portraits from: Lori Earley (Madonna), Paul Chatem (Rick Rubin), Kris Lewis (Beck), Travis Louie (Trent Reznor, NIN), Shawn Barber (Angus Young, AC/DC), Natalia Fabia (Pink), and it is also said we will see Jeremy Lipking painting Snoop Dogg, Ron English (Metallica), Van Arno (BB King), Shepard Fairey (Paul McCartney) and many more.

    i love lori earley but i absolutely ADORE travis louie. his painting are quite special in real-life and almost photo-like. i urge you to visit his site as he has a lot of amazing pieces. from there you can nag him to get a book published of his art.
