Art Exhibit: Colabria
Two artists with opposing styles and techniques come together to create pure magic. Witness their minds as they grow within themselves and with each other on canvas as they take turns creating a piece in a live performance. Colabria is a duo art show created by artists Mike Grandetti and Valentina Manuele. Their artwork both solo and collaborative pieces creates visual emotions of two lovers learning to navigate life together with one of them battling mental illness. Music will be provided by The Chrissy MacCullagh Band.
Mike Grandetti is from Carmel, NY. He graduated college with a degree in Commercial Arts and is currently a Graphic Designer for Excel Printing during the day and a musician at night for The Chrissy MacCullagh Band. Constantly creating throughout his day to day life. Mike is an abstract artist, seeing life in a way not many others can. Most of his artwork comes from his passion for music and it's almost as if he converts musical notes into paint.
Valentina Manuele is also from Carmel, NY. She is a self taught artist, home health aide and mother. Valentina has been creating art since childhood. She uses saturated colors and heavy texture in most of her work. Her inspiration comes from her own battles with mental illness over the past decade and how beauty can be found in the most darkest of places.
