So honored to share this with you all. A few months ago I started shooting these editorials for the local newspaper which featured the clothing styles of local individuals. Well one of my first assignments was this gentleman with sparkling rings and flashy coats, even a twinkling smile! His name is Oscar Martinez. Apart from championing Tejano music, touring all across Texas on a red school bus, he is a talented painter. He has been honored by the Tejano Hall of Fame, Tejano Roots Hall of Fame, and the Nettie Lee Benson Latino American Collections at UT Austin (best school in the WORLD!) He is going to have a public exhibit at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center located at 600 River St. Austin, Texas, 78701. The exhibit will run from january 19-March 30, 2013, with an opening night reception at 6 to 9 PM with a performance by Oscar Martinez featuring Larry Lange and his Lonely Knights beginning at 6:30. Make sure to visit the “Friends of Oscar” section… where you might recognize a familiar face… I’ll give you a hint, it begins with “M” and ends with ….. “E.”
Below is the informational flyer for event as well as some of the images captured by myself for the assignment … and includes his rendering of ME.
