This group has been organized by and for collectors of art by Paco Felici - one of the coolest up-and-coming self taught artists from Texas. Paco's art straddles the line between folk and pop art. A prolific painter, in only a few years his art has been purchased by thousands around the country and he has developed a loyal following. He has already been featured on numerous magazine covers, news stories, and recently illustrated a prestigious literary anthology published by the University of Iowa. His art is influences by folk artists ranging from Mose Tolliver, Howard Finster, Joe Louis Light and others, but also is remeniscent of Warhol and Keith Haring. What's especially cool about his art is the way his subject matter encompasses a wide array of American icons (Statue of Liberty, Uncle Sam, Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben) and celebrities - and captures them in a folksy context that also reflects his strong background in Latin America and as a world traveler.
