Tribe and Red Restaurant announces plans to feature local artist Trevor Mikula in a special art show on Tuesday, August 16, from 6 to 9 p.m. The show will feature close to 30 pieces of all new works by Mikula in the restaurant and front lobby.
The exhibit will be rightly titled “Mish Mash” as it features works of florals, landscapes, fruits, and farm animals, all done “Trevor” style. Some of the paintings even contain words and small phrases of a humorous nature. The works range in price from $250 up to $2000 and there will be several sets of pieces that can be bought together or separately.
“My work as an artist is to make people happy. I like to think that at the end of a long day someone can see my work and feel good,” says Mikula.
Known as a young man uninhibited by paint, he interprets traditional subjects with a palette knife, vibrant paint and little regard for convention. The results are beautiful pieces full of life.
Mikula hails originally from Michigan but grew up in Spring Hill, Tennessee. He has a fresh approach to the canvas and his paintings share a large part of his personality. His paintings often glow with a whimsical and childish charm that anyone can cherish. The pieces are innocent, with pure, thick paint applied in layers. They are full of exciting colors that can’t be ignored, and leap with energetic forms. Trevor is a self-taught artist and his style is unmistakable and memorable.
Trevor’s work is also shown in galleries throughout Tennessee, New Orleans, Denver and Scottsdale, Ariz.
