As I arrived at the Mainsail 2023 Art Show, the first booth I stumbled upon was of the Artist Alann Jordan Boatright. I have been following him as an artist for over a decade. His vivid colors and subject matters pull you in and take you on thought provoking journeys.
Alann Jordan became an artist at the age of 8 years old, utilizing pastels as his medium. Although he flunked art class in high school, he went on to college and graduated as a commercial artist and became a technical illustrator for the United States Airforce. His paintings are about "Today's news & yesterday's history" as he explained. Every painting tells a story and as you take a closer look, the stories go deeper and deeper from each individual perspective. All grounding points start with a robot. His art work is far from AI (artificial intelligence). There is nothing artificial about his work, subjects or him. It takes a lot of talent, ability & brains to tell the stories like he does. As the forward thinker that he is, his next addition will be Augmented Reality.
