Join us for a Riverside Final Friday art show opening featuring a selection of paintings by longtime Wichitan Mike Fallier, son of late noted watercolorist James Fallier, AWS. Great textural urban and figural compositions; featuring music by our own Greg Smith.
Mike Fallier, a native Kansan, has painted all of his life. His father, James R. Fallier AWS, is a nationally recognized artist and has been a huge influence on Mike’s career. As a watercolorist, Mike’s style evolved and developed. His subjects were mainly traditional landscapes, wildlife, Native American, and Southwest scenes.
During his travels and adventures, Mike learned in workshops and through simple observation. A short stint as an award-winning billboard painter helped Mike develop his skill as a sign painter and muralist.
Currently Mike paints in acrylic with a more understated, contemporary style. This more experimental approach involves some collages with metal-leaf, sand, salt, etc. His subject matter includes figure studies, urban street scenes, landscapes, and some music themes.
