Young and an artist. A romantic notion, no?
And yet, not so romantic that it cannot be true. It is here, as a young artist, that we find our first Vango Master Artist Bailey K Chapman.
She drums in not one, but two rock bands, travels the nation snapping pictures for inspiration, and serves as adjunct professor in her home state of Texas. An odd mix? Not when you see it all laid out on canvas. Everything – the drumming, the traveling – becomes clear, as her interests translate onto canvas, albeit wonderfully distorted. Her paintings have the best trappings of psychedelic rock and roll, mixed with natural elements. Organically melting, folding, and bending, her compositions boast saturated complementary colors paired readily in the imagination and rarely in nature.
Bailey received her BFA from University of North Texas and my MFA from Texas Woman’s University. She currently spends her days painting out of her studio in Denton, TX and her two bands, Pearl Earl and ABACABA, fill her nights with loud music.
