THE ALPHA OMEGA ARTS

Portrait of Tony Melendez
Last Saturday, January 24, 2015, my dear friend and mentor Arsenio "Tony" Melendez passed away unexpectedly. As the Outsider Art Fair made headlines this week, I enjoyed daily reminders of the spirit and talent of this amazing outsider artist. Below is an interview I did with him for our October 2013 A&O INSPIRE ME! Artist of Month.
