One of the stars of FX’s “Sons of Anarchy,” Michael Marisi Ornstein (Chucky) is also a multimedia artist. His latest exhibition will debut October 8 in Los Angeles.
The Melrose District in Los Angeles is where Michael Marisi Ornstein will house his debut interactive art exhibit on October 8, at The Congregation of the Forgotten Saints.
The Congregation Gallery promotes an edgier artistic format, but owner Cody Varona saw something stylistically avant-garde yet emotionally universal in Ornstein’s works of art.
Ornstein is an east coast transplant from NYC by way of Cape Cod with a flair for serving up raw emotion through hand-mixed colors on canvas, metal, plastic, paper, wood and anything else he can find to paint on.
He also exudes his artistry through acting, currently as the disturbingly loveable character Chucky on FX’s smash series “Sons of Anarchy.” Combining his palpable talent for creativity and his longtime visionary interest in working with cutting edge media, Ornstein’s “Hand Painted Radio: An Interactive Art Show” will pioneer the direction of how art is presented and communicated. Sara Lou of Preachers and Fools Tattoo Studio located in Forgotten Saints will be on hand to serve up several of Ornstein’s original tattoo designs at the opening reception.
All are invited.
