I met Royce Deans five years ago through Deviantart, and since that time, he's really been doing a lot with art and has expanded his projects. He and Tali Farchi formed a painting endeavor called Paint in Action, where they do live painting to music. I've seen it myself, and it's pretty cool. One or more musicians will play music, and they will paint as a response to it, and their art is projected onto a wall. They post their finished pieces in the gallery where they are working and online.
They've been in Chicago a couple of times, and they're coming again this Saturday, March 17 to participate in The Chicago Loop Colorboration Project. Tali will be in town until April 11 and Royce will be here until April 24. But you should check out the website for the latest info as changes occur.
The location where they will be painting with live music (different musicians and groups every day) is at 208 S. Wabash (here's a map). It will take place from March 17 - April 24. There will also be an Artist Reception on Thursday, March 22, from 5pm to 10pm. I usually work at night, but I'm going to try to make it early, around 5 pm, or late, around 9 pm. See you there!
