We Make Art in Atlanta:

As a continuation of the article I wrote, “Why I love Atlanta and Making Art Here,” Zombie Cat Productions has been interviewing local Atlanta artists almost nonstop in a continuing series called “I Make Art in Atlanta.” Here are the artists so far that have been so awesome and taken time to talk with us:

Chis Hamer– mixed media artist whose comment on the original Burnaway article spawned this series of Atlanta Art Community spotlights

Jinx Strange– painter, mixed media sculptor, writer, and web comic creator

Rick Lovell– designer and illustrator, educator at Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta campus

Angelyn Pass– mixed media artist who works with film negatives in Celluloidic Artistry

Yu-Kai Lin– contemporary artist, owner/director of Kai Lin Art, a midtown Atlanta art gallery

Michi Meko– installation artist who works with found objects, mixed media

Adam Wellborn– mixed media artist specializing in the use of resin

Evereman– “street artist” or “tag artist” who gives to the community through the Evereman Project

You have to go check out every one of the above links and read a little bit about each artist and find out how they feel about Atlanta and fellow local Atlanta artists. It’s a real eye-opener.

I’m proud to be an artist here in Atlanta. I have yet to get my work out there like many of the guys in these articles, but I’m definitely working on it. Slowly but surely. For now, I’m just honored and proud to feel like I even fit in the same category as them.

This topic of local artists that Zombie Cat has been focusing on recently has touched home and is something that I really feel strongly about. Please, go read. You’ll love it as much as I do.
