"More From Between My Lips,” is a new exhibit featured at LiT bar gallery rooftop for the month of February. This exciting new group of art showcases colorful photography by J. Michelle Martin-Coyne, stencil work by Tony Westlund, and mood inspired creatures by Chad Mount.
J. Michelle Martin-Coyne, from Oklahoma City, has been inspired for years by her husband, Wayne Coyne, and his elaborate and visually stimulating band, The Flaming Lips. Photographs include recent endeavors by the Flaming Lips such as their U.F.O. show on New Year’s Eve 2006 in San Francisco, Devendra Bernhardt partying shirtless at a recent show in Tokyo, and thousands of balloons and people colorfully cheering and gleaming in epiphany. Michelle’s photographs create this mood, somewhat the same euphoric bliss you get when you see an actual Flaming Lips concert. One can’t help notice that strange costumes and colors bring back a childhood memory of happiness. The exhibit is a tribute to the psychedelic space rockers. In fact, the entrance to LiT is actually located on the newly named Flaming Lips Alley.
Tony Westlund, originally from Austin, recently moved to Oklahoma City and brought his modern urban stencil painting style with him. Tony finds unique photographs and expends extensive efforts to incorporate stencils into his findings. He then transfers them to canvas and rearranges the image to create emotionally evoking eye candy. Oklahoma’s art community has received a talented new addition with Tony Westlund.
Local artist Chad Mount has been revolutionizing the art scene in Oklahoma. Involved in various projects, publications, and events, he is leading the way for many upcoming artists. Inspired by what surrounds him, it’s no surprise that Chad’s artwork consists of various creatures painted on vinyl records, beer coasters, and on a more traditional note, canvas.
