Houston is really one of the most amazing places to live- you can do anything, see anything and go anywhere. While at a Halloween party, Evan and I met an artist (who happened to be dressed as a giant baby- I'll let your imagination run with that one :)
His work mostly includes metal sculptures but he also does some beautiful plaster work. After having some fun conversations at the party- he invited Evan and I to an art showing of his....and we were thoughtfully surprised by awesomeness and superb craftsmanship of his sculptures. (Evan couldn't stop marveling at his weld points- I'm not even sure what exactly those are :).
Here's Navid and I sitting in front of my favorite sculpture.
Navid has an amazing outlook on life and his art- he is not one to let anything put him down and will plow through anything with the biggest smile on his face. If he's working on a piece and it isn't connecting with him- he sets it down and finds something that makes him happy (which many times may be leaving his shop and taking the day off :). Not a bad way to make a living!
You can see more of Navid's artwork here....
And here's Evan and I in front of Evan's favorite piece.
Definitely looking forward to having one of these someday!
