June is Art Month at the Gardiner Public Library!
Local artist, Mario Del Rio, a.k.a. Cuba, is sponsoring the month of June at Gardiner Public Library for our Year of Reading.
Mario, or Cuba as he says people know him, has donated at piece of his artwork for our June drawing. Kan 2 Kanvas is the name of this new business venture for Mario. His medium is spray paint and water in a spray bottle. All of his art is as “green” as he can make it. Mario uses recycled or found materials when he is creating – an example of this can be found at the library. This particular “canvas” is actually the top of a T.V. table that Mario and his manager, Devon Tracy, re-appropriated for a new use.
Mario does custom art work as well – “anything from cell phone covers to cars” is how he puts it. All of his works are what he refers to as “Astrological Spraypaint”. Most – if not all – of his paintings are 3D, so if you have the glasses . . .
When asked, Mario suggested art as our theme, specifically “spray paint art”, “graffiti” or “urban art”. All great ideas, but we are being as general about our theme as possible, so art it is!
