Artist Taryn Alessandro is breaking the mold. We want to film the innovation behind her work and inspire the rest of the world.

UPDATE:

To show our appreciation for all pledges, big or small, every single backer will be entered to win a 6 x 6 ORIGINAL Taryn Alessandro painting, made EXCLUSIVELY for kickstarter!  

Although we've reached our minimum fundraising goal, any funding received over our goal will go towards improving the quality of our project, bringing back things we had to cut from our original bare-bones budget.  This will enhance the final product and impact our audience greatly!

Taryn Alessandro Fine Art 

Voted Maui's Best Local Visual Artist, Mixed Media Painter Taryn Alessandro is pumping new life into the world of fine art with her innovative paintings. Finding inspiration in almost anything, she has catapulted her work to new heights by harmonizing up-cycled found objects with her already rich mixed media painting style. Through her collaboration and transformation of materials like scraps of fabric, paper, foil, sand, glass, aluminum cans, cardboard, broken jewelry, etc, it’s obvious that Taryn sees beauty well beyond the common eye. The ability to combine her classical painting foundation with a limitless scope of materials and original techniques is what sets Taryn apart most from other artists.

Taryn is currently represented at four galleries on Maui and Oahu. For a young artist, she has already gained an impressive amount of recognition from those who have had the opportunity to see her work. She has been voted Maui Times' Best Local Visual Artist of Maui in both 2011 & 2012, and her piece “Reflections,” was selected to be in the 2013 edition of American Art Collector, an annual publication featuring 250 pieces of art representing the American Art movement for that year- wow!  Her paintings really are making breakthroughs on the forefront of contemporary art.  Not only has Taryn come up with a unique painting process that has never been seen before on the commercial art scene, but she continues to innovate and push limits with each piece she creates. The work is refreshing, inspiring, and captivating.

"I love experimentation and I always welcome new ideas and materials into my work. Each piece is a new adventure for me.  Creating art completely immerses me. More than a passion, it almost becomes an obsession"               - Taryn Alessandro

The Video

Taryn’s art is already in high demand in Hawaii, and now it's time to get it out there to the rest of the world.  Taryn will partner with MTVN Writer/Producer Katie Shesh to produce an artist documentary highlighting her unique process.  Also part of the production team is Sound Engineer JD McMillin who will contribute his audio skills for all sound needs. This video will allow Taryn to take us through her experience and show us where she is going with it.  We will see the positive impact her work has made through interviews with collectors, fellow artists, gallery directors, & the beautiful models that inspire some of Taryn's best work. It will include footage of Taryn at gallery events and giving live painting demonstrations, and an intimate look at her working in-studio and the sources of inspiration that drive her- including the gorgeous backdrop of Maui.  Taryn has made some real breakthroughs in fine art, and it’s important we document it.   This video will give art lovers worldwide, access to this unique mixed media painting style Taryn has created.  Weaving her art into the medium of video will allow her to expand her reach through a new platform.

With your pledges we will be able to cover the costs of: equipment rental, travel expenses, location permits and post graphic needs.

Let’s keep inspiration thriving and get Taryn’s voice out there!  We thank you for every donation, big or small, and for helping to keep Taryns dream alive!
