CANVASS 44: Toy Designer & Sculptor Eric Nocella Diaz Supports President Obama

Tuttz meets the Renegade

“The Renegade Obama bust is a really good platform. A good game plan to try to enhance the bust as a custom will be difficult. Thing is, even unpainted it doesn’t need anything and to add something… the trick is to not diminish it.”

~ Eric Nocella Diaz

Eric Nocella Diaz was one of the first artists to commit to participating in CANVASS 44. We have a long history with Mr. Nocella Diaz. Through his toy production company, he has been instrumental in helping us bring multiple collectible sculpts and toys to market, including the Renegade Obama bust.

When we shared the concept of CANVASS 44 with Eric in early 2011, he was very supportive of our efforts to contribute art that documented the accomplishments of the 44th President, beyond his election. This was during a time when President Obama’s popularity had predictably dropped after his historic election…and after fighting for healthcare reform.

So it was a natural fit to invite him to embellish the Renegade Obama bust as part of CANVASS 44. We invited artists to interpret the President’s statement:

“This is what change looks like.”

~ President Barack Obama

The “canvas” is a specially prepared Renegade Obama bust pictured above next to one of Eric’s collectibles, the Tuttz. The 1/6th scale bust is approximately 11 inches high and was sculpted by Grey Williamson & Kilroy III.

As Eric finalizes his designs, we will share additional images of his custom Renegade Obama bust.

Please share your Obama-inspired art with us @CANVASS44.

Thanks for reading!

POTUS & VPOTUS Sculptures by James Munoz aka MrSculpty


President Obama Sculpture by James Munoz

Vice-President Biden Sculpture by James Munoz
President Obama Sculpture Vice-President Biden Sculpture

“I have been sculpting since I was literally a boy. I can still remember the days of Playdough… It wasn’t until I got older, and my skills got better, did the thrill of creating become really significant. Almost political.

Like Obama, I am of a mixed race. He inspires me to believe that, today, it doesn’t matter. In the U.S. we all can be whatever we want.

I choose not to get to involved with my political beliefs publicly, but can acknowledge how important President Obama is. President Obama is, whether you like it or not, the most significant President since George Washington.

As an artist, I choose to sculpt individuals who have a significant impact on our world.”

~ James Munoz

This is not Mr. Munoz’ first Presidential sculpture. His “Young Bill Clinton” is a one-of-a-kind sculpture that was signed by President Bill Clinton himself.

Rumor has it that Vice-President Biden is considering a run for the top office in 2016. Think Mr. Munoz can go three for three?

Both sculptures are made of terracotta. The Obama sculpture is 12″ H x 5″ W x 5″ D, the Biden sculpture is 12″H x 5″ W x 5″ D. You can follow Mr. Munoz as he finishes his pieces on twitter at MrSculpty.

CANVASS 44: O’bamabots, Romneybots & Other Politico’bots

‘Tis the season… Obama v Romney… time for all the pundits to weigh in.

Let the name-calling begin… O’bamabots… Romneybots…

Mindless followers or politicians devoid of human sentiment… Ouch…

Maybe, simply, just enthusiastic investors in the political process…

The following are some early designs of Politico’bots based on a line of collectible toys, O’BOTs.

Naturally, we couldn’t decide which outfit we liked best for the First Lady…

Can you guess the politico’bot pundit below?

Have a fave? Let us know on twitter @carbonfibreme!

CANVASS 44: United We Stand: A Tribute to America: Presidential Paintings by Alex Krasky

“About our President, I think he will be reelected. He is a strong Guy. And if you saw all my webpages, I have a very special dream. I want to meet our President personally and hand him my Art. (It’s already signed: From Alex Krasky to Our President Barack Obama). My Mom is waiting that one day I will do it. I promised her I will. She is the only one who is still alive in my Family. I want to make her really proud of me.”
~ Alex Krasky

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Alex Krasky‘s journey to America began when he left the former Russia/Ukraine in 1997.  Although he expressed an interest in art at the age of 5, it wasn’t until seven countries and twelves years after his arrival in the United States that he took an oil painting class and picked up a brush for the first time.  “I learned, life is not a rehearsal, we go forward every day, regardless. I learned to savor the moment and take pleasure in small things in life. After all, life is made up of thousands of “small moments”.

CANVASS 44: BAMA Oil Painting by Ragamuffin Arts’ Oneil Maitland

“BAMA” Oil Painting: 16 x 20

“This piece is inspired by the masking or make-up of politics. To always show a person of leadership joyous and heroic is unrealistic. I aim to show a man leading a nation divided by various ideologies. The intense color of the background makes the lone president monumental as is his responsibility.”

~ Oneil Maitland of Ragamuffin Arts

Proceeds from the sale of “BAMA” will benefit Organizing for America and Africa-Diaspora Partnership For Empowerment & Development Inc (ADPED).  The ADPED is a not-for profit organization with membership from people of all nationalities, creed, and gender, who are bound together by a strong commitment to empowering people of Africa and the Diaspora to achieve community-led, self-reliant, sustainable livelihood and development.
