Airs: April 11th @ 7pm
Just because you are a small person doesn’t mean you can’t have a big impact. Lil Mike and Funny Bone are, almost certainly, Oklahoma City's only on-call, full-time, American Indian, little people, hip-hop artists. Measuring in at a height of 4 feet 9 inches tall they're anything but a novelty act. The brothers, respectively have spent sixteen years making the rounds of contests, churches, birthday parties and schools while developing their skills as beat-makers and rappers in a series of independently produced recordings. Their songs have found radio play across the country and they have opened for many big-name acts such as NU Wine. The Christian message within their Music is meant to inspire, raise hope and to challenge those who are different to Dream Big.
BOOKING: MIKE & BONE (405) 248-8682
Funky. Lyrical. Poetic. Vibrant. Colorful. Sophisticated. Reverential. The art of SKIP HILL is a savory gumbo of artistic and cultural influences gleaned at the apron strings of Romare Bearden, Picasso, and Van Gogh. Patterns, images and forms drawn from Negro folk art, Japanese Ukiyo prints, Russian Icons, the Italian Renaissance and tribal textiles and tattoos are tossed into the mix.
Oklahoma City artist Skip Hill cooks with color, mixes methods, explores, tastes, erases, adds seasonings of Art History and healthy doses of Soul. His paintings are a visual mishmash of Pad-Thai and collard greens sprinkled with Jesus.
"PAINTING IS SACRED PLAY and ritual for me, as much as dance, worship, music or cooking. The process calls me to be open to Intuition, Divine guidance, memory and the gifts that flavor my painting practice. Long story short, in this lay the bread of my blessings.”
Skip Hill is a visual artist from Oklahoma that corroborates his experiences with various cultures, languages, and beliefs to create his captivating collage works. His artwork is found in collections in the US, the UK, France, Argentina, Colombia, and the Netherlands. Meet the man behind the art in April on OETA’s national award winning documentary series, Gallery.
