Brooklyn-Born Artist Debuts New "Everyone Could Use A Hero" Collection of Portraits
Artist T.M. Noël
Nationwide (March 12, 2013) -- 'Everyone Could Use a Hero' is the creative offering of Brooklyn-born artist T. M.Noël. This soul-stirring collection of portraits captures the likeness and essence of a variety of famous, and infamous, personalities who have shaped sociopolitical circumstances throughout mainstream, cultural and urban, historical struggles.
During his teen years in New York, he partnered with the International Black Student Alliance and formed AngryHouze Studios, collaborating with other talented young artists and providing a refuge from the streets.
In the mid-90's he moved to Arizona to further his art education, and learned first-hand of the separate-ness that still runs rampant in some parts of the country.
'Everyone Could Use a Hero', kicked down the door in Phoenix when it was selected to launch the 2013 line-up @Central Gallery in Phoenix Arizona's main library. It began just prior to 2013 MLK Day and it stood out as the premiere Phoenix Black History tribute.
The artist, who spends his time in New York and Arizona, has a presence on the Avenue of Stars in the plaza adjacent to the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Phoenix.
Mr. Noël is currently in discussion with Dr. Khalil Gibran Muhammad and his staff to bring this impactful work to the Schomburg. The work is also available to sponsor for east coast tours and exhibits.
Noël's Fine-Art Portraits have also been shown in galleries associated with major colleges in New York and New Jersey. His work has attracted a global following, and has been purchased by African princes as well as everyday people.
His work displays a creative style infused with a unique array of scratches, cuts and abrasions resembling a badge of honor, for the burdens born by the subjects. The end result is a masterful communication of the essence of each chosen subject.
The work is provocative and alive. It invokes a feeling that the subject is studying you, as you study the subject.
A visit during the masterful 'Everyone Could Use a Hero' , is a profound and memorable experience... soul fuel, indeed!
