    BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND, Orlando Barsallo will be making his second live performance painting session in just three short months! Robin B Gallery is pleased to showcase this talented body painting and make-up artist as part of the FLOWER POWER exhibit and April’s Third Thursday event. His creativity, attention to detail, and ability to enhance the human form through artistry has gained national attention since his initial performance.

    His last exhibit during Robin B Gallery’s Third Thursday hosted in January was featured in February’s online edition of the national e-magazine ModernSalon.com. The article entitled Cyborg-Terminator Body Painting, written by Laura Salapatek, highlighted Orlando’s ingenious art of transforming the human figure into a robotic character through the use of paint and prosthetics.

    In addition to his body painting, this on-the-go artist has just completed several artistic stints, including the make-up for the upcoming video for the rock group – and friends of Robin B Gallery – The Last Vegas. This particular assignment demonstrated his vast talent. In a matter of eight hours, Orlando, in collaboration with Sarah English, celebrity hair stylist, were able to transform the look of band members of The Last Vegas from Cowboys to Hip Hop to Eighties Glam Rock to Heavy Metal. The preview of The Last Vegas video is tentatively scheduled for release on April 18th at the Double Door.
