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.

Oklahoma City-based artist, graphic designer and everyone’s favorite Mule bartender Jason Pawley hopped in the van at last week’s Live on the Plaza to discuss his art and striving to be a full-time artist.

Make sure to come out this Friday for another great Live on the Plaza.

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.

 

Change doesn’t happen by itself.

Lucky for Oklahoma City, we have Kristen Vails working her tail off. She’s spent the better part of four years promoting and revitalizing the district.

Vails is the executive director of the Plaza District. If you haven’t noticed, the Spy Van makes a special trip to every Live on the Plaza event to not only have fun but also to film interviews with Okie artists.

You can thank Vails for setting up these interviews.

For some reason, we’ve waited this long to chat with Vails about her artwork. A lot of her work is based on Vails’ favorite hoofed animal.

Take a minute to learn about an Okie that’s all about artwork.

Last month, we caught up with Okie via Germany artist Jeremy Watson.

It was one of his first showings in our state, so let’s give him a warm welcome and check out what he has to say about his creations.

Check out some stills from the shoot after the jump.
