NONSTOP DISNEY PERFORMANCE ART ACTION
and captivating performance artists Carlton & Reis are bringing
the art world something it has never seen before. They have
successfully combined their unique talents in art with the appeal
of improvisatory shows. These artists give you an opportunity
to be there from the moment a blank canvas becomes a work of
Trevor Carlton took up painting
in high school but quickly realized his true passion was acting.
Leaving his gift for painting behind, Carlton moved from Great Neck, New York , to Los Angeles in pursuit of a career in acting.
Amidst all of his auditions and call backs, Carlton paid the
bills by working at a custom furniture store, where he specialized
in antiquing and faux finish designs. It was here that Carlton's
natural talents were able to shine through. He developed his
own style using reclaimed lumber as his "canvas" to
paint images of vintage Americana from pop to hay day jazz.
With Stephen Reis, Trevor has
come full circle combining his two loves of painting and acting.
Stephen Reis is a California native born in Los Angeles in 1974.
He has spent the majority of his life immersed in all types
of art. These types include studying film production at Loyola
Marymount College in CA to fine art in Florence , Itlay. Although,
some may say his real claim to fame is his role as an animator
for the Simpsons, where he has worked for the past six years.
With Trevor Carlton, Stephen has brought proportion, perspective
and all the traditional aspects that come with his experience
as a sought after animator. When asked why they do this they
respond in unison, "we want to tell a thirty minute story."
The artists use the time constraint of the performances to their
advantage and they let the audience dictate the outcome of the
painting. In the beginning of the show, Carlton and Reis have
only decided on a character, they let inspiration and emotion
be drawn only by the audience's reactions. They truly bring
out the best in each other, which makes this high-energy performance
an art experience that should absolutely not be missed.
