Conlfuence-Josh Gerard from Morocco. Josh Gerard has shows to show how he paints in his Gallery Store(River Arts area of Asheville, NC) where he may speak & play music while he paints on large paintings. He sometimes uses dye on silk. There are several videos on line & he has his work to buy on line + he has a blog. It is very interesting & if you can't afford a painting, he has prints & tiles. People who don't originally care for art are influenced by him.
