Budding artist: Aiden Rose

Posted By on Fri, Apr 20, 2012 at 9:04 AM

We've been following the career of the relatively unknown artist Aiden Rose for years. Now, he's about to break on the scene in Little Rock with an exhibition at Community Bakery.

David Rose, Aiden's father and an artist as well, says Aiden has been an artist since he was a little boy. Now 8 years old, Aiden's giving his second one-man show.

Besides the illustration above (click on it to see it larger), Aiden is also the creator of anti-hero Kung-Fu Cat. You can see Aiden's art in May at the bakery and meet him at a reception from 2-4 p.m. May 5.

David Rose notes that "Picasso said that he spent his childhood trying to make art like an adult and then spent his adult life trying to learn to make art like a child once again. Aiden has no such issues."

  • A miscellany of art: Aug. 10-16

    We don't get to post all the jpegs of artwork on exhibit that come into the office, but they have more allure and tell you more about the work than what I can write about them. Hence this slideshow of work from shows opening tonight (Aug. 10) for 2nd Friday Art Night, 5-8 p.m. (see the To Do list for more information), and other openings and shows this weekend and in the days ahead.
