Works by "Rootman"


Rootman Bio -

Rootman. A name earned on the football field and embraced as an artist. He explores its significance through his paintings with vibrant colors, bold subjects, and honest perspectives.

Rootman. A self-taught native Floridian, painting since he was a child and had dreams of becoming the next Leonardo DaVinci. His art reflects his obsession with life’s mysteries and discoveries while exploring a variety of artistic styles.

The images in my paintings
are naturally occurring designs that stimulate creative and spiritual forces.

They reflect the beauty awaiting discovery within ourselves.

Javier Dones Bio -

Javier Tomas Dones is a visual artist born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico in 1967. Graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1990 from the Universidad Interamericana de Puerto Rico. Relocated to Saint Petersburg, Florida in 1992. 

Javier’s current work springs from a lifelong passion and fascination for the elements of Nature, her power, patterns, and structures. The medium is metals and chemistry. Copper is the main working material. The coloration on the copper is the actual patina elicited by unique chemical processes.

View and mission involve collaborating with nature in the production of fine craft art to elicit a sense of re-connection, appreciation and belonging to those elements of nature while beautifying and enhancing the space. “Feel the power of the elements of nature".
