Mauro Balcazar

Mauro Balcazar (MrMauro) started drawing professionally in 2011 with his debut piece inspired by the film “The Last Dragon.” Since then, Mauro has fallen in love with illustrating art inspired by pop culture. Currently, his work can been seen on and on various audiobook covers for R.L Stine (Thriller Chiller Theater), Matthew Laube (Ancient Awakening), and Andrew Lang (Golden Hood, Cinderella).

Shades is his 1st published art book inspired by his favorite pop culture characters in history! Mauro currently resides in NJ and can be found drawing daily until the crack of dawn. (Send help.)

Fred Paparella

Montclair resident and visual artist, Ferdinando (Nando) Paparella, employs unique concepts and color theory to communicate with his audience. Using aerosol and acrylic paint he draws a line between contemporary and abstract to discuss individual conflict, growth, and relationships with those around us. The end products are warm, positive aesthetics that can be enjoyed by all.  He will also be LIVE PAINTING in the shop!

The Art Walk takes place from 6pm-9pm on May 20th!  Artists and Artisans will each have a table, showcasing their work, that you can also purchase directly from them!

Looking forward to seeing everyone for this fantastic event!
