2014 POSTER BY FRENCHY RELEASED:
About the artist:
Born to a boxer and a saint on August 16th, 1970 , in the industrial New England town of Lowell , Mass. , Randy Leo Frechette -– a.k.a. Frenchy –- has been drawing since he could grip a pencil. In grade school he impressed friends with caricatures of teachers and classmates, but he did not realize his true calling until The Boston Horns approached him in Orlando and persuaded him to paint their performance live.
From that point forward, Frenchy has led a colorful and dynamic ride with stops at concert venues and sports stadiums all over the globe. Based in the talent-rich city of New Orleans , Frenchy is an ambassador to the arts and a bastion of creativity. His presence fills venues both large and small with an explosion of creative spirit. Frenchy captivates onlookers with his artistry in motion –- painting events in real-time as they unfold before him. His performance is captivating and its end-result is awe-inspiring.
Since 1997, Frenchy has called New Orleans his home and his muse. The vibrant local music scene pushes the artist’s creativity and expressiveness to new limits. And he has branched out further by tapping into the city’s sporting events -– ranging from weekly Saints game as the “official team artist” to Super Bowls and NCAA Championships. During Mardi Gras season he can be seen marching in parades, painting onto to canvas while other toss beads.
