John’s art piece of Alice Cooper was auctioned for $120,000 at the rocker’s annual Christmas Pudding fundraiser. https://guitarpickartist.com/
Andrea Croteau (Red Dot Miami, K-Art Projects Booth 200)
Andre Croteau creates “luxury friezes” – textile-infused, resin-based canvases that evoke a glossy, shiny sense of life, energy and well-being for those that experience them. Initially looking for a contemporary sensibility, within which to capture his love for the brilliance of stained glass, Croteau has coined an opulent and organic style that’s infused with an amalgam of color, shine, movement and depth. Croteau received his formal training at New York’s renowned Fashion Institute of Technology and remained in New York for the majority of his fashion career, creating for such luxury houses as Saks Fifth Avenue, Piero Dimitri Couture, Paul Stuart and Alexander Julian, before relocating to Miami. https://www.andrepaulcroteau.com/
