Carlos Aleman Brings Dark Chocolate to Delray’s Arts Garage!

 

I had the privilege of visiting with local artist and writer, Carlos Aleman, just before the debut of his latest Dark Chocolate exhibit (called “Samurai”) and was happily introduced to his wife, Jean, and surrounded by his wonderful works.

Carlos and I sat down last August, and I was very impressed with not only his talent, but also his kindness. He is worldly, imaginitive, and prolific in his expression of his creative genius. Be sure to catch this local treasure’s latest exhibit–Samurai Dark Chocolate at Delray’s Arts Garage! Why asked for the play-on-words reason behind the name of the exhibit, Carlos explained:

“Dark Chocolate is the nutritious, antioxidant-rich form of the deliciousness derived from the cocoa seed. So, a “Dark Chocolate” Japan, for instance, would be the best version of Japan–or, at least what I like best about it. And, this Samurai Dark Chocolate is an extension of what I did last year. […] This is my geek, pop culture thing. It’s about not being too serious. I believe in sincerity, not seriousness. There’s so much seriousness in this world, I want to tone it back a little.”

Upon your visit, you will be treated to a bevy of Japanese-inspired paintings and sculptures from this incredible artist, including many that were not featured in his previous big Dark Chocolate showing:

 

 

The Arts Garage has established itself as a mecca of local talent–from artists to musicians and more–and, having Carlos’ exhibit there is a real special treat.

 

 

Don’t miss Carlos Aleman‘s Samurai Dark Chocolate at the nine four Gallery at Delray’s Arts Garage, showing now through August 11th, and be immersed in his vision! The showing is full of vivid colors and imagery that express his passion and love for Japan and it’s culture with a pop/animation flavor to his presentation. Your senses will be absolutely delighted! While you’re there, be sure to also pick up his latest art books.

Triple-threat Tori Lynn Displays her Talent on the Sunfest Stage

When I first met my 58th guest, Tori Lynn, at No Snow Ball back in December, it was immediately evident that she has that “it” factor–that unspeakable essence that makes her come to life when she hits the stage to entertain the crowd. It is an absolute pleasure watching her work so hard everyday and have the blood, sweat, and tears pay off. Last Thursday, Tori Lynn rocked the Tire Kingdom stage at SunFest!! Each time she steps onto a major stage like that, it’s just one more stepping stone on her journey toward entertainment domination. She is talented, driven, and simply unstoppable.

I remember he saying to me during our podcast: “I like to dream big. It’s fun to dream big. And, it’s fun to want to go after your dreams.” In other words, she is a curvist! And, I couldn’t be more proud to have a front seat to her accomplishments. Tori Lynn is one of south Florida’s talent powerhouses, and she’s only just begun!

Enjoy some clips from her SunFest performance:

Love Who I Am:

How Deep is Your Love:

Mama Said (personally, my FAVORITE Tori Lynn tune):

Finally, from our convos after SunFest, I’m sure there was no place she would have rather been that night!!

No Place I’d Rather Be:

Tori Lynn is a rising star bursting with positivity. Follow her journey as she keeps working toward her dream and be inspired to find your passion and do your thing! Congratulations, Tori Lynn!!
