Creativity. Passion. Energy. Flair.
Those are just a few of the many words that spring to mind when describing
the brush strokes that come from the palette of world-renowned artist Frenchy.
Of course those words also fit Frenchy's vibrant personality, which makes sense,
because that persona is reflected in every piece of work the artist creates.
Who is Frenchy?
Born to a boxer and a saint on August 16th, 1970
, in the industrial New England town of Lowell, Mass.,
Randy Leo Frechette -– a.k.a. Frenchy –-
has been drawing since he could grip a pencil. In
grade school he impressed friends with caricatures
of teachers and classmates, but he did not realize
his true calling until The Boston Horns approached
him in Orlando and persuaded him to paint their performance
From that point forward, Frenchy has led a colorful
and dynamic ride with stops at concert venues and
sports stadiums all over the globe. Based in the
talent-rich city of New Orleans, Frenchy is an ambassador
to the arts and a bastion of creativity.
His presence fills venues both large and small with
an explosion of creative spirit. Frenchy captivates
onlookers with his artistry in motion –- painting
events in real-time as they unfold before him. His
performance is captivating and its end-result is
Since 1997, Frenchy has called New Orleans his home
and his muse. The vibrant local music scene pushes
the artist's creativity and expressiveness to new
limits. And he has branched out further by tapping
into the city's sporting events -– ranging
from weekly Saints game as the “official team
artist” to Super Bowls and NCAA Championships.
During Mardi Gras season he can be seen marching
in parades, painting on canvas while others
He is as “ New Orleans ” as red beans
and rice on Monday, yet he doesn't limit himself
to the Crescent City . Frenchy aggressively tours
the country, painting events in order to quench his
creative thirst. He hits music festivals and sporting
events across the globe, while also pausing for commissions
and studio pieces. All the while he bounces along
with a care-free step and creative smile.
There will be a limited number
of Frenchy 10,000 Lakes Festival prints available for
sale at the General Store Merch Areas. Also stop by Frenchy's booth, located
near the Field Stage in the concert bowl, for amazing
live painting as well as a gallery space and art for
purchase. Visit Frenchy on the web at Frenchylive.com
Doyle's hands have molded some of nature's hardest elements into magnificant
organic shapes. From life-size trees of twisted steel, to huge custom door hinges
and corporate sculpture.
His medium for expression has varied from steel, to stone
and leather and eventually to adorning the human form as an awardwinning
But Sean didn't stop with his elegant garments and extravagant
fashion shows. He carried his talents beyond the glamourous world of fashion,
and into the land of imagination, with a large scale blacklight, interactive
theatrical set he calls "Imagine
With an unusual talent for combining unlikely, and often thought
provoking visual elements in his art, Sean has a knack for cultivating a visual
splendor that lingers in the minds of those who experience it.
Sean might for example, create a giant
meadow of glow-in-the-dark flowers and grass, where painted performers move
through a living art canvas. Smoke ring cannons, lava drummers in contamination
suits, a giant paper monster and glowing backdrops add an element of fun and
surprise for the bands and events Sean has been commissioned to create atmosphere
Sean Doyle isn't likely to stop at leather corsets, bustiers
or blacklight faerie lands. As his rich repitoire of talents has grown, so
have his ideas and ambitions. Sean draws assistance from a growing pool of
talented artists, musicians painters, photographers, builders, performers
and models to help him express his large scale, interactive visions.
