Ethan Azarian – Paintings
On the walls of The Blue Dahlia Bistro
Through June

Excuse the brief detour into the culinary arts, dear reader, as it must be hollered from the mountaintop…The Blue Dahlia Bistro has a proscuitto tartine with mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes and mixed greens that is boogie-down delicious.  Patronize this lovely eastside joint (and as long as we’re on the block, it’s also worth it to have a cocktail while sitting at the gorgeous bar at The Longbranch Inn) that focuses on both local and organic items for its menu, with a casual atmosphere punctuated by fresh air and natural light…

As an added bonus are the hung paintings of Ethan Azarian, providing a playful universe of glowing fruit, cosmic cows, animated cityscapes, flying toasters and more.  Once the frontman for Austin-based indiepoppers The Orange Mothers , Azarian’s artistic perspective has steadily been one of childlike curiosity coupled with absurdist fantasy.  Always playful, with just a hint of darkness that whispers what’s to come with the hardened perspective of adulthood.

Simple as that.
Check it.
