Visual Arts & Vendors: May 31 at Thalia Hall



Live Painting, Chicago

Emmanuel White Eagle and his art are an eclectic mixture of styles and mediums. From his visual standpoint he fuses ethnic design from all over the world from iconography, fashion, culture, spirituality and religion as well as some political and cultural statements of the environment around him. Emmanuel sees the world reflected as a kaleidoscope either from his surrounding culture or globally and brings that fusion into his work visually and philosophically. Emmanuel’s art puts the world into unison from his personal yet global perspective deriving the cosmos into his way of life with pure creative expression whether trough fine art, illustration, animation,video and film, electronic music or fashion.

Ricardo Gonzalez

“The concept behind my work focuses on creating a dialogue about the displacement and belonging of the Mexican-American culture in the United States through its intersection with various elements used to brand culture such as popular iconography, externally imposed generalizations, and perpetuated stereotypes.”




I began working with this material a few years ago and it came very naturally. Unlike painting or design, I enjoyed not making any sketches first – sometimes not planning anything at all but letting the ideas just – come. I also prefer to show humanity w/out all of the ‘extras’:  skin, hair, clothing – so that the viewer isn’t limited by sex, race, age, etc.
