Collaboration Project with Unicorns Poop Glitter

Debuting this weekend at RuPaul's DragCon are nail gloves that Unicorns Poop Glitter and I collaborated on.  What can I say? I love these and I am sure they will sell out in LA.

New Mural for a private backyard in Clearwater


They wanted a mermaid and an octopus.  I painted it.  This is the first time I painted a vinyl fence.  I primed, painted and sealed it.  As always thank you to ARTISSIN for being my spray paint dealer!!

100 FILMS2 at Greenbench


I had a lot of fun making this piece for the 100 Films2 show... I picked the Wes Anderson film, "The Royal Tenenbaums." Each tiny picture on the wall is a scene from the movie.

GLO WALK

I did a mural for the GLO WALK to benefit MY HOPE CHEST.  I was given VIP tickets to attend the VIP party but I learned that an important local artist passed away, Matt Callahan, and I didn't feel like going out that night.  But, from what I heard and the pictures I saw... it looked like a lot of fun and the backdrop mural looked great with the black light.


CASA Benefit Fundraiser Tableaux



I was asked to make a tableaux for the CASA fundraiser at the Vinoy.  So I sewed together canvas pieces and hand painted Keith Haring imagery.  A Tableaux is a painting that has come to life with actors.  I requested two actors dressed in all one color and acting out Haring painting figure movements, using the props that I made. (pictured above). I have no idea what happened at the actual event and never got to see any pictures of how it turned out with the actors.  Hopefully it went well... I had a great time learning about Haring and studying his work for this project... in fact, I based my wedding invitation on a Haring wedding type invitation.  Yep, you heard me right--I'm getting married!! 

Two Kosharek ART solo shows this weekend!





Thank you to Maggie Duffy for the write up in the Tampa Bay Times!

If you need something to do this weekend... come see me in Carrolwood on Friday night and at Davidson Fine Art on Saturday night for Art Walk.  Both are solo shows.  All my new work will be at Davidson!

Last mural of the year...


Photo credit goes to Edel Mohr. She's working on a book documenting all the murals in St. Petersburg, FL.

This is my last mural for 2017.  It's been a great year and I hope to work on new mural projects for 2018.  Please contact me if you'd like a Kosharek Art mural and I'd be happy to make your mural dreams come true.  This one is located behind the Cafe 1001 and faces the CASA thrift shop main entrance.   I wrote "hang on to hope" on the neck of the flamingo for the women who might happen to look that way and need a message of hope.

There is also a special guest appearance of Bob the Robot by Mark Stevens.  I asked Mark to add Bob  for fun.

Like all my freestyle spray paint murals... I had a blast painting this one and would like to thank Frank, the owner of Cafe 1001.

Peace out, 2017.

Art Lab!


        I was pleased to be a part of the ART LAB live painting event at Centennial Park in Ybor City yesterday.  Each artist was given a space to set up their easel and supplies.  We were given the topic, "Florida's Finest," ten minutes before the competition began and then given two hours to complete our 12X12 art piece. This was my first competition and I had fun meeting other artists and the people who came by to cheer us on!  The event was very well organized with a plethora of activities for children and adults.  At the end of the day, my painting came in second place and I won a membership to the Tampa Museum of Fine arts and a gift certificate to the Art store, "AOE supply, inc. 12908 N. 56th Street, Tampa, FL 33617."  Thank you to Thornhill Foundation for the Arts for putting on such a fun event!

Half Dead mural at the Vintin Hotel's Courtyard









Special shout out to ARTISSIN INC for sponsoring my paint for this mural.  
Thank you to Nick Kekllas for curating this event!  
Thank to the VINTIN Hotel for having all of us! 

Johnny Vitale, Myself and Orlando based muralist/artist Andrew Spear.  Andrew said to my daughter, "Isn't it cool that your mother is a street artist?"  That made me smile pretty big.  I painted right next to Andrew and Charles Richardson.  The Hive event featured many artists throwing up their best work on the walls of the Vintin Hotel's courtyard.  I'm pretty sure a good time was had by all. 

Latest Gretchen in the 600 block alley!







Directly behind 645 Central Avenue you can find this latest Gretchen wonder! Thank you to @Hijodelande  for this fabulous photo!

Half Hundred Swing Show: Homage to Joseph Cornell, Kobe, Japan








photo credit to: KAT 

This was a very exciting show to participate in!  Joseph Cornell has been a big influence on my mail art and assemblage pieces.  Thank you to Nichola Orlick for curating this show in Kobe, Japan.  
My piece, as the vast majority of my work is a self portrait.  I included many pieces of my life in my tobacco tin box... from my lucky penny to used spray paint fat caps--this piece is a slice of my life.  Here are some pictures I took before I mailed it:
