50th and France Art Crawl

Winners announced!

Congratulations to the 2014 50th & France Art Crawl People's Choice Award Winners!

1st Place

#7 - Jonathan DeDecker, Fashion Avenue
“My work predominantly consists of characters and jumbled pieces that have come together to create an unforeseen whole. Using acrylic, oil, enamel paint along with markers, pastels and various other mediums. I find myself defacing my work faster than the paint will dry. The process is uninhibited, unbound by time and as much aware of motion and embodiment as dance.”

2nd Place

#5 - Daniel Jaffe, Lush Cosmetics
“My name is Daniel Jaffe. I’m a resident of Minneapolis. I was born and raised here. I mainly work with paper as an art form but, I am always open to trying out new mediums. I’m highly influenced by Pop art, contemporary and modern movements in art. I like to use a lot of color to make my work stand out.
