Artist of the Season
Each season we feature an Artist with cool and funky work we want to share with you both at the store and here on the blog. Our endeavor is provide a thoughtful space to discuss all kinds of art, and to promote local Artists. The opinions and expressions of those we profile does not necessarily reflect the opinions of Funky Junk or the Authors herein.
Winter 2013- Jillian Mara Zeigler- "This is where I feel I will sound esoteric and a bit silly, but I see colors that want to be featured and work with just those colors." You can contact Jillian directly at jynjin19[at]hotmail[dot]com and check out her website Jillian Mara for more inspiring Art.
Fall 2012- Sean Taranto- Sean's tribal inspired art "is the immersion of reality into Fantasy. It is a link to my inner magic.I'm a conduit of inspiration."
Summer 2012- Sam Mameli- Sam is a recent graduate of Alfred University Art School, in Alfred NY. If you run into him on the street you'll recognize him as "about 5'10'', I wear a red hat, glasses, and have outdated facial hair."
