The multi talented LI North Shore artist, Larry Aarons, is fulfilling his dream of being a successful full time artist. For the second year in a row his sculpture and art photography “Defense of the Species” collection were featured in the exciting X Contemporary Art Show at the hippest hotel during Miami Art Basel week, The Nobu Hotel on Collins Avenue.
Larry Aarons, has been named “One Of The Top Artists To Watch.” He’s the recent recipient of the prestigious President's Award From Salmagundi Gallery / AAPL, just last month he was awarded the Gold Medal of Honor from the American Artist Professional League. He has had many group and one man shows on Long Island, NYC and Florida, his art is in private collections across the country.
Larry’s creative success was formulated many years ago in the early 60’s when he went to art school in NYC to become an illustrator, fate had him segue into the booming advertising world, becoming one of the now famous “Creative Mad Men.”
His "Defense of the Species" is Provocative Art, and X Contemporary features six pieces from the collection. It was created to raise eyebrows and open passionate discussion about the beauty and the right of all creatures to exist on our planet. Larry donates 15% of art sales to animal rights’ causes to help save the animals. www.defenseofthespecies.com
Aside from the Miami X Contemporary art show, "Defense of the Species" sculpture is currently being featured at The Heckscher Museum’s 2016 Art Biennial in Huntington, LI. in addition to being seen in LI Newsday, another of his "Defense of the Species" sculpture is in NYC’s “In Harm’s Way” art show in the Lower East Side gallery, Central Booking.
Larry’s inner art desire to fulfill his artists’ quest never left him. All this success started five years ago when he returned to his love of art and he’s never looked back. Larry is a real Renissannce man; he’s not just a contemporary artist his classical training shines with fine portrait skills. His charcoal portrait of
