Michael Ziobrowski in collaboration with Sneakshot
Anaheim Gardenwalk, Anaheim, CA
ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
Michael Ziobrowski was born in Chicago, and at a young age, migrated west with his folks, to be raised in sunny southern California. His Polish parents raised him with a sometimes strict, but always loving hand and fostered an appreciation for art, music, good home cooked food and style. With a strong affection for all things dealing with Pop Culture, Music and Fashion, Cut & Paste… Inspiration these days is infinite. Michael strives to create art and design on a daily basis. Hand Cut collage is his primary medium, with a focused pastel color palette juxtaposed behind black and white photography.
The past six years, Michael has filled his time with daily practice of his art, self publishing collage art books, public art projects, gallery and pop up exhibits, and occasional live art at music festivals. He has had the blessing of making the cover of KOLAJ Magazine twice, was awarded a “Best Visual Artist” in OC Weekly Readers Choice Poll, commissioned by Questlove of The Roots to paint drum kits for the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and had his work licensed for placement in a published Toyota advertising campaign. The future is bright.
The exact date and time of Sneakshot’s birth is a hotly disputed fact throughout the entertainment/music/photography industry. Some say Sneak was born when the first record needle came to rest in the groove of a fly piece of vinyl. Others claim Sneak first appeared circa 1999, sporting a pair of red, black and green Pumas at a Roots’ show. Legend has it one can catch a glimpse of her recognizable afro in some grainy bootleg videotape footage of Prince’s Lovesexxy tour in the late 1980’s. Truth be told, Sneakshot has always been one to be anywhere and everywhere as far as great music is concerned. “As a child born in the 70’s but growing up in the 80’s, music has been an essential part of my life. As a youth, my mother would ALWAYS have something playing on the record player, and weekly trips to the record store only fed my thirst for music. Forget candy, tasty vinyl treats were my sweet tooth. The album covers, coupled with the concerts my mother took me to coupled with my interest in photography fueled me. The music and the image are one..capture the moment as YOU see it.”
