Zoey is big time. His high profile clients include Tom Hanks, Snoop Dogg, Steven Spielberg, Howard Stern, and Kanye West. He just returned from Las Vegas where he commissioned three large pieces for the Hard Rock Hotel. And Zoey has raised more than $500,000 for JDRF and other select charity events through live painting demonstrations and donating art works. At events, he’s appeared alongside Jay Leno, Warren G, The Black Eyed Peas, Dana Carvey and many more.
The females who posed as characters in Alice in Wunderland (Out of the Shadows) include his favorite model, his beautiful wife, Jennifer and for Alice, he chose friend Kit Pistol, a “Project Runway” designer. Zoey’s portrays the story from Alice’s perspective, a modern girl, enhanced with pop culture images as metaphors and characters. Zoey incorporated at few notorious Rappers to “Tea Time” to “add a bit of madness to the piece.” His inspiration for the series came from Salvador Dali’s interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s classic story. One piece for each chapter of the story, 12 pieces total.
The showing is free and open to the public. Complimentary cocktails too! 2500 N. Palm Canyon Dr., # B5, Palm Springs. 760.416-3611.
