Do you have a moment for a funny story? Not funny, “ha, ha”, but funny like “what an interesting coincidence”.
A couple of years ago, a beautiful bride-to-be named Ashley, came into the gallery to meet with her wedding planner (we share our gallery space with event planners). Carol, our art consultant, and Ashley got to talking and turns out that not only do Ashley and her fiance, Mike, love the art of Chuck Jones, but Mike’s also an artist. Carol invites him to submit a canvas to that year’s Red Dot Auction.
And everyone loved his work (still do, for that matter)! So, that’s how Mike Bilz became one of the artist working with the Chuck Jones Looney Tunes character legacy. Mike’s unusual and funny point-of-view coupled with his rich, baroque palette and luminous painterly technique make for delightfully unique works of art.
For more information about the original and limited edition art of Mike Bilz, please contact Carol Erickson at the gallery, 949-274-4834 or your own personal Chuck Jones Gallery art consultant.
