Artist Christopher Maslow to Appear at Museum Monday



Melbourne, FL , The Foosaner Art Museum Guild presents noted artist Christopher Maslow demonstrating his technique at its next Museum Monday program on Monday, January 23, 2012 at 10 a.m. in the Museum Galleries.  A native of Melbourne Beach and former Los Angeles resident, Maslow’s recent work includes fine art commissions and large-scale murals for both public and private ventures.

Maslow began as a street artist with a love of graffiti art.  He moved to Los Angeles where he began receiving commissions to create large-scale murals and also attended the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.  In 2009 Maslow returned to Melbourne, opening Slow Gallery X Fashion Boutique where he showcased his clothing line and art.  With commissions for his art greatly on the upswing, Maslow closed the boutique, deciding to focus on his art from a new gallery space at 1008 E. Strawbridge Avenue.

 Still Motion, a Christopher Maslow Fall 2011 solo exhibition at the Art Gallery of Viera, featured native Florida wildlife as well as a number of Brevard Zoo celebrities…all painted in the artist's exploding acrylic style.  Currently, Maslow is working on a Gateway mural to appear on the back of the Eau Gallie Square Pavilion, one of several commissioned by the Eau Gallie Arts Distrist (EGAD).  

Museum Mondays, held from October through May, focus on arts and creativity in various forms.  The programs are free and open to the public, with light refreshments served.  For additional information call 242-0737.  The Foosaner Art Museum is located at 1463 Highland Avenue in the Eau Gallie Arts District, Melbourne, FL.
