Last month’s Live on the Plaza introduced us to tattoo/fine artist Josh Reynolds.

The avid Adult Swim fan and devoted father spoke to us about how painting informed his growth as a popular tattoo artist in Oklahoma City. Don’t forget to make it out to Live on the Plaza this Friday. It should be a barrel and a half of good times.

A special thanks to Ryan Parker for lending us his excellent track, “Feel.”

Check back tomorrow to see how tattoo artist Kyle Reynolds created this while riding in the Spy Van during last month’s Live on the Plaza. He has plenty to say about balancing artwork and his full-time tattoo job. We still can’t believe he drew this in a moving vehicle.

Norman-native artist Jamie Pettis hopped in the van at Live on the Plaza to discuss her passion and what it’s like to miss Oklahoma.

We welcomed our first photographer to be interviewed for our monthly Artist Sessions.

On the second Friday of November, Okie native Ashford Ravenscroft Thomson hopped into the Spy Van and discussed his passion for photography.

If you haven’t experienced Live on the Plaza for yourself then make sure to check it out tomorrow.

Last month we once again grabbed a talented artist and performed an interview/art experiment in a moving vehicle.

We do this every month at Live on the Plaza.

Our Plaza District friends chose Sean Vali and we discussed collaboration, Voltron and the energy of the Oklahoma City art scene.

Come see us tonight in the Plaza for another night of free fun.

M. Paul Kirby says he’s no good at interviews.

We are glad to prove the Stillwater-based artist wrong.

When we met him last month he spoke eloquently about the power of art and his feathery bird creations.

Take a minute to learn up about the talent that makes Oklahoma unique.

Also, if you haven’t dropped by the Plaza District on the second Friday of every month then you’re not only missing a bevy of free and fun entertainment but also you’re missing the chance to see the Spy Van in action.

Come say hello at Live on the Plaza this week.

We won’t bite. Too hard.

 

Phillip Danner is an artist with a knack for texture.

Little did we know that he wanted to create textures inside the Spy Van with office tape, spray paint and even fire. The only thing hotter than the cruel July sun was Danner’s art as he took one of his older pieces and transformed it into something new. This doesn’t come as a big surprise because the artists working at The Society are quite the creative whizzes.

It has been a couple months since we’ve had an Okie artist jump into the van for an Artist Interview Session, but we hope this episode starts another wave of sessions at Live on the Plaza. If you’re unfamiliar with Live on the Plaza then please check into the free art and culture explosion that takes place every second Friday of the month.

Keep on trucking, readers and watchers.

Check out some stills from Danner’s session after the jump.
