Collaboration: Boys to Men Art Expo last night #ArtLife

Last night I was honored to be apart of A.T.B. Fine Aristis & Designs/ Collaborations "Boys To Men Art Expo". A one night only art exhibit made of 12 incredibly talented visual artist ranging from 16 to 75.

 Anthony & Trina Burks welcome you to Collaboration: Boys to Men Art Expo, where you can experience a variety of art in different disciplines and appreciations produced by professional male artists in the Palm Beach community from ages 16-90. The art will be available for sale so please support our artists.

Art visionaries Bruce Helander& Paul Fisher partnered alongside A.T.B. Fine Artists & Designers to allow this show to happen. . The building owner in conjunction with Christian Angle Real Estate was generous enough to provide the space to allow an array of outstanding art exhibitions such as this to go on during 2012

 The works displayed were amazing. A lot of the artist of men I look up to and admire, for myself to be allowed to be have more work on the same walls as them was priceless. I made a interesting friendship with Steve Blouse, whose pieces I was next to. Cool thing is his works are reminiscent of Keith Haring, and I'm a huge Basquiat fan so I'll let my fellow art lovers figure out why we are 'kindred spirits' as Trina put it. Unfortunately do to a series of misfortune events to put it lightly I spent most out wondering the streets. Nonetheless a amazing show, incredible thing. You have to love Anthony & Trina Burks for their hard work and dedication. And also a special thank you to Bruce Helander & Paul Fisher.

News article in the PBPulse about me

Just taking the time to update my blog. I was featured in PBPulse.com article called "Discover Local Artist: Jason Fleurant" written by Christine Davis. I'm really honored in her believing in me and my work enough to write this beautiful article. It's one of my biggest highlights to know I was featured in a article in my own home. There is something about seeing my name, my father's name Fleurant in places for positive reasons.

"PiecesOfME" OUR Art Exhibit & Other Upcoming Shows I'll Be IN


A cool way to show that there is a real appreciation of art. "PiecesOfMe" is not a solo art showcase but a group art showcase unlike any other. A one night only group exhibit, where YOU play the major role by bringing the artwork that you own that I created. Because you own a Piece of ME which is now a piece of you

This a great innovative way to show art appreciation on another level, people always complain we don't support each other here's a chance to prove them wrong. If you can't make it but have some of my artwork, contact me so I can arrange to pick them up for the show, you WILL get them back.

I will be unveiling a new piece that night tho, which will be available for sale at Collaboration Boys to Men Art Expo on the 28th of this month. Also I will have a canvas setup for everyone to paint on so that at the end of the night WE will of created OUR own piece of art together.
