Plinio Pinto is an Orlando-based artist who I first met when he submitted his work to a visual art show I was curating and producing for The Florida Music Festival called Rock Walk. His work quickly became my favorite music-themed art I'd seen in years; it jumped off the page at me as I fell in love with his perception and attention to detail. I even have the 3-piece rocker chicks triptyk (see below) hanging in my house. Plinio does a hell of a lot more than just music-themed work though, and he also happens to be a stand-up dude. Here's just a taste of what his portfolio is like...
Recently, he decided to explore a new style and capture it within his "local series" - portraits of Orlando folks involved in the local art, music & cultural scene, handpicked by Plinio. I'm honored to be a part of this project.
Plinio has been a regular artistic contributer to local publications such as the Orlando Weekly, and also specializes in photography and graphic design. Yeah, he's pretty much awesome!
