BAT Features (BAT FEAT)

Introducing our Fave Feature, as we count down to the Trail in November which begins 11/7/13…

Felipe Soltero, working out of 305 Knowlton Street, is a full time artist.

His biography:

Born and raised in the city of Bridgeport (CT), I have spent over 24 years learning, creating, mastering and earning a living from the craft of custom art.

I’ve expanded my artistic versatility by earning a bachelors degree in commercial art at The Connecticut Institute of Art in Greenwich, CT.  I learned many different types of media applications, styles and techniques.

As I’ve sharpened my skills throughout the years,  including  use of the airbrush to allow me the ability to render my creations on an infinite array of surfaces.

I am currently accepting commissioned work and will be exhibiting in the near future.

My Services Include: Fine art paintings, Portrait commissions, Mural Art design and application, Automotive Art and Face ‘n Body Art.

I take pride in using only the best in paint products and have an unrelenting devotion to always create quality work.

Felipe
